The final environmental impact report (EIR) has been released for the Los Angeles International Airport Specific Plan Amendment Study (SPAS), which includes a proposal to move the northernmost runway closer to the Westchester community.
An electronic copy of the final EIR can be found on the LAX SPAS website. Hard copies will be made available to the public at locations including the Westchester-Loyola Village Branch Library, 7114 W. Manchester Ave., Westchester.
The environmental review includes written responses to comments submitted during the official public review period of the LAX SPAS draft EIR, revisions to the draft EIR, and other final EIR material.
The city Board of Airport Commissioners will review and consider the LAX SPAS final EIR, along with other information and testimony received during the public comment period and public comments during a Jan. 31 special session, as part of its deliberation on whether to select a LAX SPAS alternative, airport officials said.
The board is scheduled to deliberate on the SPAS and north airfield proposals at a special meeting Tuesday, Feb. 5.
Actions taken by the Airport Commission at the Feb. 5 meeting may be subject to review or approval by the Los Angeles City Planning Commission and the City Council. Various state and federal reviews and approvals, including the Federal Aviation Administration, will also be required prior to implementing any LAX SPAS alternative approved by the Board of Airport Commissioners.
