The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) is hosting four community meetings to get community feedback about future rail service, including the proposed extension of the Crenshaw/LAX Northern light-rail line through West Hollywood.
Meetings in locations near West Hollywood include one on Thursday at 6 p.m. at the Westside Jewish Community Center, 5870 W. Olympic Blvd. in Los Angeles.
There also will be a community meeting from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday at Virginia Road Elementary School, 2925 Virginia Rd., in Los Angeles.
On March 26 there will be a meeting at the United Teachers union headquarters at 3303 Wilshire Blvd., in Los Angeles from 6 to 8 p.m. And on March 28 there will be a meeting at the West Hollywood Library Community Meeting Room, 625 N. San Vicente Blvd., from 6 to 8 p.m.
Under discussion will be key destinations, community concerns, design considerations and potential routes.
The City of West Hollywood has been working to build support for the Crenshaw/LAX Northern Extension light-rail transit line, which would provide north-south connections and enhance the existing Metro regional rail network. The city is working with Metro and the City of Los Angeles to accelerate the project from a scheduled opening in 2047 to as early as 2028.
Those interested in updates on the city’s efforts can sign onto a mailing list from West Hollywood Advocates for Metro Rail (WHAM).
