next stop for LAX master plan
BY ANITA VARGHESE
The Los Angeles County Airport Land Use Commission is the next stop for the Los Angeles International Airport(LAX) final master plan (Alternative D) and the certified Final Environmental Impact Report (F-EIR).
The proposal has been sent to the county commission for review and public hearings.
After the City of Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners and the Los Angeles City Planning Commission held public hearings in May and June and approved the $9 billion master plan Monday, June 14th, the master plan was sent to Los Angeles County to determine if the master plan is consistent with the county airport land use plan.
Los Angeles County public hearings have yet to be scheduled.
When the Los Angeles County Airport Land Use Commission approves the master plan, the plan will be returned to the Los Angeles City Council for consideration and a final decision.
After completion of the Los Angeles City Council process, the Federal Aviation Administration will be asked to complete a Final Environmental Impact Statement and render a final Record of Decision on the master plan.
The final LAX Master Plan and F-EIR are available for public review at more than 50 libraries throughout the City of Los Angeles and online at www.laxmasterplan.org
