The LA City Council is about to vote on whether to move LAX's north runways and potentially shut down Lincoln Blvd. 2-5 years for construction. They need to hear from us the day of the vote. Numbers matter, so we're asking you to come downtown on the 30th to submit your comments in person.
WHERE AND WHEN: LA CITY HALL - Tuesday, April 30th 10:30AM
200 N. Spring Street (click here for directions) You must enter City Hall from the Main Street entrance. Security will direct you to Council Chambers on the 3rd floor. Allow at least 15 minutes to get inside the building.
HOW TO GET THERE
By public transportation: the Civic Center Metro station is located only two blocks away. Take the Expo Line from Culver City to the 7th Street Metro station, then transfer to the Red Line and take it to the Civic Center Metro station. Allow 45 minutes to get downtown. Round trip cost is $6.00
By car: The closest pay lot is at 225 N. Los Angeles St. at the LA Mall (click here for directions). Cost is $16. Exiting the Public Parking area, you will end up at the 'Food Court'. Go up to street level to get to the Main Street City Hall entrance.
By carpool: We are organizing a bus to take speakers downtown. If you are interested in this option, go to this link to RSVP. You must RSVP by Sunday. Cost is $15 cash and will be collected before you get on the bus. We leave from Councilman Rosendahl's Westchester office at 7166 West Manchester Ave (click on this link for directions )at 8:30am and will return around 2pm, depending on the length of the hearing.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU GET THERE
Each speaker is allowed one minute to make their point, so please have your remarks prepared in advance. When you first get to Council Chambers, you must fill out a Speaker Card and hand it to the Council Secretary to be allowed to give public comment. We will have people there to assist you. When it's time for public comment, the Council President will call a few names at a time as he makes his way through the Speaker Cards
CAN'T MAKE IT ON THE 30TH? WE NEED YOU TO MAKE PHONE CALLS
We know of several Councilmembers who are on the fence about runway expansion. We need you to call their office ASAP.
