From: Echo Park Community Action Committee

Date:  November 17, 2009

Subject:  SR2 Freeway Terminus Project

Meeting, Metro’s Planning and Programming Committee

Wed., Nov. 18, 2009, 1:00 p.m., 3rd Floor Boardroom

One Gateway Plaza, Los Angeles, Ca 90012

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.

Tonight (Wednesday, October 21) at 7:00 pm, the Echo Park Improvement Association will meet at Williams Hall at Barlow Hospital (2000 Stadium Way).
