Hello Friends, I totally agree with Judith.With your voice, Westchester residents can (in five years) ride a train on the new Crenshaw/LAX Line from a Westchester station to downtown LA, Staples Center, a future NFL football stadium, USC, MOCA, the
courthouse, the Dorothy Chandler, Disney Hall, Union Station, LAX, and eventually the South Bay. Please (1) e-mail the supervisor now, or (2) join me at the MTA next week.
THE NEW CRENSHAW/LAX LINE:
The Crenshaw/LAX line is a new light rail line through Los Angeles and Inglewood. Its 8.5 mile route will connect the Expo Line with the Green Line over the Harbor Subdivision right-of-way. Ground will be broken in 2013.
Supervisor and MTA Board Member Don Knabe has introduced a motion that seeks design, bid, and construction of an at-grade Westchester station between Manchester and Hindry.
The Crenshaw/LAX line’s coming. The train’s going through Westchester. The question is whether it’ll stop in Westchester.
(1) E-mail support. You may e-mail and copy Julie Moore of Supervisor Knabe’s office <JMoore@lacbos.org . The message can be as simple as “I support the supervisor’s motion for a Westchester station.”
(2) Attend the Committee meeting on Thursday, Nov. 17.
The motion will be considered at the Construction Committee, which meets on Thursday, November 17 at 10:30 am, One Gateway Plaza , 3rd Floor Board Room, Los Angeles. (With this proposed station, in the future you could take a train to MTA meetings.) Knabe chairs that committee. Knabe’s office has written that “the community’s comments on the motion, as well as any support, would be greatly appreciated.” Your support will help him help us.
Since we can’t take a train (yet), let’s carpool. (Edgar’s no. 310-753-1668)
