On Wednesday, November 18, the members of Metro’s Planning and Programming Committee will consider an agenda item (Number #10) to:
A. To receive and file the Draft Initial Study/Environmental Assessment Report (DIS/EA)
B. To Adopt the Hybrid as the Local Preferred Alternative
C. To authorize additional funds to prepare an environmental analysis and preliminary engineering of the hybrid
D. To authorize Metro’s CEO to recommend the LPA to Caltrans.
The Echo Park Community Action Committee has notified the P&P Committee of our objections to items A, B and D. For item C, we do support provide additional funds to complete the environmental analysis and for preliminary studies of the hybrid, which we think should rightfully be called Alternative F.
