You are invited to attend a Public Scoping Meeting hosted by the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority (also known as the Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority). The purpose of this meeting is to discuss a proposed modification to the possible phasing of construction and operation for the 12.3-mile, six-station Foothill Gold Line light rail extension from Glendora to Montclair (Project), and a proposed modification to the location of the future parking facility at the Pomona Station.
PUBLIC SCOPING MEETING
Monday, December 10, 2018
5:30 PM – 7:30 PM
La Verne Community Center
3680 D Street, La Verne CA 91750
The Construction Authority proposes to modify the Glendora to Montclair Project to allow for the potential to construct and operate the Project in four phases (instead of two phases, as previously approved). See map below for details. In response to this proposed change, the Construction Authority will be initiating the preparation of a Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (SEIR) to evaluate the potential for significant impacts that may result from the different potential construction and operation phasing options under review, including: Phase 1-to La Verne Station; Phase 2-to Pomona Station; Phase 3-to Claremont Station; and Phase 4-to Montclair Station. The SEIR will also evaluate the potential for significant impacts that may result from relocating the future parking facility at the Pomona Station from the north side of the station to the south side.
The proposed possible construction and operation phasing is necessary to match with both existing funding and pending/future funding and provides the Construction Authority the flexibility to build and operate the phases as funding becomes available. The purpose of this public scoping meeting is to solicit input on potential issues to be considered and addressed, as applicable, in the SEIR.
If you are unable to attend the scoping meeting in person, written comments will be accepted if received on or before January 4, 2019. Please address written comments to:
