    Metro Green Construction Policy Outreach

    Staff has spent a great deal of time seeking guidance from outside stakeholders in the drafting of this important landmark policy.

    We believe that it would be appropriate to refer this draft policy to the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) for their review and comment with a report back to the respective committees in the July, 2011 Committee cycle.

    WE THEREFORE MOVE that the draft policy be referred to the TAC for review and comment and that the item be continued to the July 2011 Executive Management, Construction and Measure R committees respectively.

    (ALSO ON CONSTRUCTION COMMITTEE AND MEASURE R PROJECT DELIVERY COMMITTEE)

  10. ADOPT the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA) Green Construction Policy.
