The City of Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners has established a new LAX master plan stakeholders group, designed to gather public input on the proposed Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) master plan and to make LAX master plan information available to those impacted by the master plan.

The stakeholder group was also requested by the Los Angeles City Council when the council accepted the LAX master plan Alternative D “consensus plan” and adopted a specific plan for the LAX master plan project.

Airport commissioners have appointed Bob Gilbert as interim stakeholder liaison.

Airport executive director Kim Day is heading a job search for a permanent stakeholder liaison, Gilbert’s assistant, Enrique Valenzuela, told The Argonaut.

Airport commissioners want the stakeholder group to include airport-adjacent residents and community members, labor groups, airlines that use LAX and airport tenants.

The office of the stakeholder liaison plans to form at least three committees and hold two public meetings a year, Valenzuela said.

The first such meeting was held Thursday, February 3rd, and drew about 100 persons, he said. The next such public meeting is planned for August.

The stakeholder liaison office is temporarily housed at 6151 Century Blvd., Westchester, but during the coming months an information center will open at 6661 Imperial Highway, Westchester, near the Flight Path Museum.
