Anyone concerned about worsening traffic as Los Angeles County grows in population is encouraged to attend and learn about MTA's plan to keep local streets and highways moving freely. Spanish language translators will be available at the meeting.
The public can get copies of the draft Long Range Transportation Plan at the public workshop or by calling MTA at (213) 922-2833 or visit the MTA web site at www.mta.net and click on Long Range Transportation Plan information to view the summary and a list of other upcoming public workshops. Copies also are available in the Records Management office in level P-1 at MTA headquarters, One Gateway Plaza next to Union Station in downtown Los Angeles. Business hours are weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Those unable to attend a workshop but who wish to comment on the draft plan can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or write to MTA Countywide Planning & Development:
Attention: Long Range Plan
One Gateway Plaza
Los Angeles, CA 90012
Comments must be postmarked by Wednesday, April 11, 2001 to be considered by the MTA Board of Directors before it considers adoption of the plan probably in late April. Notice of the Board meeting will be posted in advance once it is scheduled.
Following Board adoption, the MTA Long Range Transportation Plan will be forwarded to the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) for inclusion in its Southern California regional transportation plan so Los Angeles County transportation improvements can be eligible for state and federal funding.
