SGV – The Metro board recently approved the ballot initiative to extend Measure R for an additional 30 years (to 2069) but does not provide for funding from the Gold Line Foothill Extension to Claremont.
At a recent meeting, there was much support for the completion of the Foothill Extension to Claremont, from the public and congressional members.
The issue now goes to the Board of Supervisors for their approval. If passed, the initiative will be on the November 2012 ballot.
Metro CEO Art Leahy at a recent San Gabriel Valley COG meetings said that there is simply no more money for the Gold Line (Foothill Extension). As things stand now, Azusa looks to be the endpoint.
