The Construction Authority is evaluating potential Project Modifications to the Glendora to Montclair Project that include a proposed change to the parking location for the San Dimas Station parking facility (see details in background section below). The agency has initiated a Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (SEIR) to analyze the environmental impacts of the potential project modifications, pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). As part of that process, the Construction Authority will be hosting a virtual public scoping meeting to receive input regarding the scope and content of the SEIR.

BACKGROUND: The Construction Authority will evaluate potential Project Modifications in the city of San Dimas. On June 17, 2021, the City of San Dimas in cooperation with the Construction Authority approved a binding letter of intent to consider relocating the San Dimas Station parking facility to property owned by the City. The city prefers not to displace the City Yard that is located within the currently approved parking facility location (SEIR 2 certified in January 2021) and expressed a desire instead to locate parking for the Project on an existing parking lot west of the future San Dimas Station. The proposed site is currently used as the San Dimas Park & Ride Lot for Foothill Transit and located south of the project right-of-way (ROW) between San Dimas Ave. and Monte Vista Ave.
For this SEIR 3, the Construction Authority is considering relocation of the parking facility in the City of San Dimas from the approved location in SEIR 2 to this requested location (see map below). The proposed new parking location would be redeveloped to accommodate the same number of parking spaces as planned at the currently approved parking location. The Construction Authority also proposes new roadway and pedestrian access changes to the San Dimas Station.
No modifications are proposed for the parking facilities at the Glendora, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont, and Montclair Stations.
