LOS ANGELES, Oct. 13, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Two public scoping meetings are scheduled by Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) during November to discuss a Revised Notice of Preparation of a Draft Environmental Impact Report for Los Angeles International Airport's (LAX) Specific Plan Amendment Study.

The first meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 3, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The second meeting will be held on Saturday, November 6, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. The meetings will be held at the Proud Bird Restaurant, 11022 Aviation Boulevard, in Los Angeles. 

The public will also be able to view the November 6 meeting, via webcast, at www.ustream.tv/channel/lawa-meetings , beginning at 9:15 a.m.

The proposed project consists of a Specific Plan Amendment Study, including related amendments to the adopted LAX Plan and LAX Specific Plan.  Potential amendments will be identified through evaluation of potential alternative designs, technologies and configurations for the LAX Master Plan Program that will provide solutions to the problems that certain LAX Master Plan projects, referred to as Yellow Light Projects, were designed to address, and are consistent with a practical capacity of LAX at 78.9 million annual passengers. This is the same practical capacity as included in the approved LAX Master Plan.

Yellow Light Projects are subject to particular approval procedures in the LAX Specific Plan and include the following:

  • Develop a Ground Transportation Center (GTC).
  • Construct an Automated People Mover 2 (APM2) from the GTC to the Central Terminal Area (CTA).
  • Demolish CTA Terminals 1, 2 and 3.
  • Reconfigure the runway, including center taxiways.
  • Make on-site road improvements associated with the GTC and APM2.

Potential environmental effects that may result from the proposed alternatives include aesthetics, air quality, biological resources, hazards and hazardous materials, hydrology/water quality, land use/planning, noise, public services, transportation/traffic and public utilities.

The Notice of Preparation is available online at www.OURLAX.org Specific Plan Amendment Study, and will be posted in the office of the Los Angeles City Clerk and on the desk of the Los Angeles County Clerk.  For more information or to request a copy, call (424) 646-7690.

Responses to the NOP should be sent at the earliest possible date and must be received by LAWA no later than 5 p.m. on Nov. 29, 2010.  Responses should be sent to Herb Glasgow, Chief of Airport Planning I, e-mail LAXSPAS@LAWA.ORG , or by regular mail to City of Los Angeles World Airports, 1 World Way, Room 218, Los Angeles, CA 90045.
