• Metro Board Certifies EIR For Azusa to Montclair


    Last night, after detailed presentations by Authority experts, consultants and stakeholders, the  Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority board of directors certified the Final Environmental Impact Report for the Azusa to Montclair segment of the project; selecting the Locally Preferred Alternative for the next phase of the Foothill Extension. The board’s thoughtful deliberations led to the critical decision milestone, which allows the Authority to start preparing for advanced conceptual engineering and design, ultimately readying the now-certified project for nearly $1 billion in funding.

    Attending last night were representatives from Congresswoman Judy Chu, Senator Carol Liu, Assembly member Norma Torres, City of Pomona, Metrolink, Citrus College and the University of La Verne, among others. The continued support and open dialogue from the entire community will ensure the project’s success in each of the communities it travels, and our board pledged again last night to work to resolve remaining issues as the project is further planned and designed. The continued participation of all stakeholders will be essential as we seek funding for the project in the months and years ahead. We thank them for their dedication to the project.

    Also last night, the board said thank you to Azusa Councilman Keith Hanks, whose attendance at last night’s meeting was his last on the board of directors. Councilman Hanks has been a strong proponent on the board, and was Chairman in 2008-9 when the project was included in Measure R and then in the Long Range Plan. The board took the time last night to talk about all that he helped to achieve on behalf of the project and to thank him for his service.

    Your headline is misleading.

    It was the “Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority board of directors” who approved the EIR, not the Los Angeles Metro (LACMTA) board of directors who approved the EIR. Given that the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority exisits soley to build the extension to the Light Rail line that terminates in Pasadena at present, this approval should not be a surprise.
