Take Action Today!!
Attend the Metro Board Meeting Thursday October 24th
10:00 a.m. at the Metro headquarters located at One Gateway Plaza, Los Angeles 90012 (behind Union Station) in the third floor Board room.
The Metro Board will be voting on whether or not to move this project to the environmental review stage and which routes to include in the review. We need you to attend and voice your concerns about this busline and how it will negatively affect our neighborhoods.
John Lee, our Councilmember for CD12, has arranged buses to transport community members to the meeting. The buses will be available on Thursday morning at the Mid-Valley Library 16244 Nordhoff Street North Hills (just west of Woodley Ave.) at 8 am.
Buses will leave promptly at 8:30 am. Members of the public may park in the Mid-Valley Library parking lot or, if the lot is full, on the neighborhood streets just south of the library. The buses are scheduled to leave Metro Headquarters and return to North Hills at 1:30 pm. The buses are full ADA compatible.
Contact us if you have questions about attending or would like info on transportation to the meeting. You may also call the CD 12 San Fernando Valley office at 818-882-1212 for more information. Please do not call the Mid-Valley Library as they have no information on this.
The full agenda and supporting documents are available on the Metro website.
Senator Hertzberg and CSUN are planning to stack the room with CSUN students and staff in support of the BRT. We need your presence to counter this CSUN attempt to push us around.
Send a letter to Metro Board Members, CSUN Leadership, and Senator Bob Hertzberg telling them “Hands off Our Peaceful Neighborhood!”
Please include your real name and address or they will not take your letter seriously. Your personal information will not be shared with any third parties and you will not be spammed.
Call to Action! Monday 10/21 – Call the Metro Board Members and tell them not to take away car lanes on the bus route.
The full Metro Board will be discussing the busline at their meeting on October 22nd. Call them this Monday and tell them:
1. Don’t take away car lanes on our major streets. Run the busline in regular, not dedicated lanes
2. Don’t move ahead with the Environmental Review – Redo the Alternative Analysis Report
3. Listen to the community
Here’s the names and phone numbers of the Metro Board Members. Start at the top of the list and move down. Make as many calls as you can, you will likely just be leaving a message with staff or on voicemail. BE POLITE!

Make certain the city council candidate you vote for is NOT in support of the busway down Nordhoff!
John Lee has committed to opposing the busway down Nordhoff. Loraine Lundquist is in favor of the busway regardless of which route it takes.
Share this with your friends and neighbors.
This project will affect all of the Valley especially: North Hills West, Northridge and Chatsworth neighborhoods.
