Los Angeles City Councilmember Bill Rosendahl is calling on his constituents in Westchester and Playa del Rey to turn out for the Board of Airport Commissioners (BOAC) meeting where members will hear public discussion regarding proposals to modernize Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), including a controversial plan to expand the North Runways.
The meeting will be held on Thursday, January 31, at 9:30 a.m. at 1 World Way, at the LAX Administration Building, which is located near the old tower just inside the entrance to the airport.
Rosendahl plans to attend the meeting and urge the board to support Alternative 2 and Alternative 9 in the Specific Plan Amendment Study. Those alternatives call for the construction of a new Automated People Mover and Consolidated Rental Car Center, and connecting the Green Line directly into the airport, without moving the North Runways closer to neighboring homes in Westchester and Playa del Rey.
Rosendahl will be joined at the meeting bycommunity leaders, business owners and nearby residents:
Cyndi Hench, President of the Neighborhood Council of Westchester/Playa (NCWP)
Craig Eggers, Chair, Airport Relations Committee, NCWP
Denny Schneider, President, Alliance for a Regional Solution to Airport Congestion (ARSAC)
Sheila Mickelson, President, Westchester Democratic Club, and Founder, Citizens for a Modern LAX
Mark Redick, Chair, Government Affairs Committee, NCWP
Jim Oulette, Member, Airport Relations Committee
Rosendahl and his constituents will send a strong message to the board members that the community wants to promote a greater vision of airport service for Los Angeles as an international city without the risk of disrupting nearby communities and neighborhoods.
