You are invited to attend a virtual Public Scoping Meeting hosted by the Construction Authority to discuss potential Project Modifications including potential changes to proposed parking at station locations, including Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona and Claremont (see details below). During the meeting, the Construction Authority will seek input regarding the scope and content of an SEIR that will be prepared pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) to analyze the potential environmental impacts of the Project Modifications.

Proposed Project Modifications
The Construction Authority will evaluate potential parking changes at the Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, and Claremont Stations. The Authority previously approved parking structures at these stations. As a result of Project refinements and revised Metro parking provision guidance resulting from a parking study completed by Metro, the Authority is now considering whether a change to surface parking lots for the Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, and Pomona locations as well as either a parking structure at Claremont or a parking lot combined with leased parking space at Claremont is warranted. This would reduce the total number of available parking spaces at the various stations. At some of these stations, the potential change from a structure to a surface lot would result in minor changes related to the configuration of vehicle and pedestrian access. New or modified parking facility locations are being evaluated in Glendora, San Dimas and Pomona. The potential Project Modifications also entail scenarios that include interim and full build terminus station conditions associated with phased construction of the project as previously analyzed during development of the 2019 Supplemental EIR.
