Latino Urban Forum Backs Goldline Extension Connecting Parks

The Latino Urban Forum recently weighed in with its preferred alternative for the Goldline Extension on the East Side. The LUF prefers the northern alternative along the 60 freeway because:

•It will provide public transit to one of LA County’s largest recreation centers, Whittier Narrows (1.5 thousand acres) located in a low income region and a rail connection to the Cornfields state park near downtown LA.
•It will decrease congestion on the 60 Freeway
•It will have the least amount of construction impacts on the built environment
•It has the most TOD developments along the right-of-way
