Green Line Extension Hearings
L.A. Metro to Host Public Hearings for C Line (Green) Extension to Torrance Project Draft EIR Feb. 15 through 25
February 9, 2023
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro) will host five public hearings Feb. 15 through 25 to receive public input and feedback on the C Line (Green) Extension to Torrance Project.
Metro has released its Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) to begin a public review period from Thursday, Jan. 26 to Monday, March 27. Public comments and questions will be documented and responded to in the Final EIR, which is anticipated to be released in 2024. The project schedule will be updated when the Metro Board approves a Locally Preferred Alternative later this year.
The new transit project, funded by the 2008 Measure R and 2016 Measure M transportation sales tax measures, will connect the South Bay to Metro's expanding rail transit network and provide faster and more efficient access to the region, including LAX, via the newly opened Metro K Line. Additionally, the line will be extended four and a half miles and two stations will be added with the final stop in Torrance.
Each hearing will include an open house during the first hour, followed by a presentation and an opportunity for the public to comment. The public hearings will be held:
• Wednesday, Feb. 15, 5:30-8:30 p.m. Lawndale high school, Centinela Valley Center for the Arts, 14901 S. Inglewood Avenue, Lawndale, CA 90260.
• Thursday, Feb. 16, 11 a.m. –1 p.m. Virtual Meeting. Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89536786223 Phone: 833.548.0282 (toll-free). Meeting ID: 895 3678 6223.
