Doubletree Hotel via Cabrillo-Marina/Doubletree driveway
Wilmington Waterfront Park (West)
Wilmington Waterfront Park (East)
Banning Landing: S Avalon Blvd and Water Street
This week's anticipated approval consists of several interrelated actions:
Finding that this bike-share expansion qualifies for a categorical exemption under CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act) law
Finding that this bike-share expansion does not violate federal civil rights law
Reclassifying already-approved pre-launch related costs (which increases the overall life-of-project budget)
At last week's committee meetings, approval of this item was uncontroversial. Boardmember and Glendale City Councilmember Ara Najarian requested assurance that this approval does not allocate any additional funding. It does not. Boardmember and L.A. City Councilmember Paul Krekorian inquired as to Metro's plans for 2018 expansion, specifically expressing his interest in expansion to the San Fernando Valley, which he represents. Metro staff responded that they are currently reviewing possible 2018 expansions and anticipate bringing proposals to the board this fall.
If approved tomorrow, bikes should be on the ground this summer.
