Crenshaw Subway Coalition: Community Meeting

From the Crenshaw Subway Coalition



The last 6 months have been an active time for the Crenshaw Subway Coalition. We helped lead a collaboration of community groups and leaders that defeated MTA's $90 billion sales tax increase. We added to our legal representation, and have had our lawsuit against MTA moved to a new judge. And we have established our issue - the complete under-grounding of the Crenshaw Blvd portion of the Crenshaw-LAX Line and the addition of a Leimert Park Village station - as a metric by which the Mayoral candidates are judged. 

But few moments will be as critical in our righteous cause as the next 90 days and we need your help.


On May 23rd, the MTA Board is scheduled to select a contractor to build the Crenshaw-LAX Line. At that moment, the board will also decide whether or not to build the Leimert Park Village station.


And on July 1 we will see a change at the MTA Board as the new mayor and their three new appointees will take seats currently occupied by Antonio Villaraigosa and his appointees. This change in administration can be key towards making the Crenshaw Blvd tunnel a reality.


Join Us at our May 2nd Community Meeting


We will discuss the Mayoral candidates' stances on the Park Mesa Heights tunnel and Leimert Park Village station, explain why that is important, and begin organizing for a large community presence at the May 23rd MTA Board meeting. Click here to download the flyer.


Donate Today


To ensure we have the resources to appropriately mobilize the community for the critical May 23rd MTA board decision on the Leimert Park Village station we are fundraising. Whether $50 or $500, whatever you can give is greatly appreciated.

Long Beach Leads in Traffic Circles

Traffic circles aren't quite ubiquitous in Long Beach, but they're around. Riding and walking through the city one encounters circles in neighborhoods rich and poor, new and old.
