Local community residents and business owners are strongly encouraged to attend!
L.A.'s Department of Transportation (LADOT) will hold a 2nd public meeting on July 19th about their efforts to impose a "road diet," and other safety improvements, on Fletcher Drive. (See below for meeting information). Their safety improvement plans to-date include a "road diet" or vehicular traffic lane reduction from the current four (4) lane to a two (2) lane configuration. (Click here for more information on LADOT's current design plans)
Also, LADOT has taken new action to advance their concept for Fletcher Drive and limit community feedback. This past June 21st LADOT applied for a statutory exemption in an effort to prevent a full Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for their project. An EIR serves to inform government agencies and the public of a project's impact on the local community. It is also essential to adequately study the project and force mitigations and alternatives, which may reduce or avoid any significant adverse effects.
Local community stakeholders need to attend this meeting and voice support for improving safety for everyone on Fletcher Drive while preserving full vehicular access.
