Metro is designing and building a new Emergency Security Operations Center (ESOC) on Metro-owned property in the Arts District. ESOC will be a secured facility for authorized personnel only and not open to the general public. The project is comprised of two phases. Once constructed as part of the first phase, the facility will house the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and Security Operations Center as a central location for Metro security operations, radio dispatch, and emergency coordination. Metro is planning to integrate Rail and Bus Operations Centers into this facility as part of a future phase 2 to have a consolidated operations center for more effective management of Metro’s expanding transportation network systems.
The project was analyzed for any potential environmental impacts according to CEQA requirements. The Initial Study (IS) findings resulted in a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) on December 16, 2015, completing the environmental clearance process.
