Last week MTA and the Federal Transit Administration released for public review the Final Environmental Impact Report/Statement (“FEIR/S”) for the Crenshaw-LAX Line. The next step is for the MTA board to vote to certify the document at their Thu, Sept 22 board meeting at MTA headquarters.
Our team of experts has already started identifying major deficiencies in the FEIR/S, including outright omissions and violations of environmental and civil rights laws, which have led to the current design of the project. The current design lacks a station at historic Leimert Park Village and has no tunnel for the middle mile (between 48th to 60th) in Park Mesa Heights. Neither the station nor tunnel is currently funded in the project’s projected budget.
Email the MTA Board Before the Meeting
Right now, the current need is for us to express our position loudly to the MTA board prior to the September 22nd meeting. Please email the following statement to the MTA board at firstname.lastname@example.org:
I do NOT support the project as currently proposed. I would ONLY support the project if built as a subway on Crenshaw Blvd and with an underground station at Leimert Park Village.
