We ended 2009 on a great note, by filling the MTA board meeting to help secure passage of the Mark Ridley-Thomas motion to require staff study and identify a funding strategy to keep the entire Crenshaw Blvd portion of the Crenshaw Line underground. It is going take a sustained effort to get the MTA to do what they don’t like doing: using taxpayer resources in South L.A. And we of course must continue our fight in the courts and on the streets to get the Expo Authority to appropriate the dollars for a grade separated option next to Dorsey H.S. at Farmdale Ave.
Join us at our first community update and organizing meeting in the new decade.

Topics for discussion:
-Expo Line: Status update on the CPUC process at Farmdale Ave, preparing for the next CPUC Public Hearing and a review of MTA’s eminent domain attempts.
-Crenshaw Line: Mobilizing business owners and residents along Crenshaw Blvd (most still don’t know what MTA is planning).
-Blue Line: Over the holiday weekend MTA’s Blue Line, America’s deadliest light rail, took its 98th victim at Vernon Station – the deadliest light rail crossing in America. We need to become more active on this front.
