Airport Commissioners Extend Public Comment Period
The Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners has unanimously
approved (5-0) an extension of the public review and comment period
for the Supplement to the Draft Environmental Impact
Study/Environmental Impact Report for the LAX Master Plan for a
total of 120 days and the scheduling of three additional public
hearings. The current program called for a 45-day public comment
period ending August 25 and the scheduling of nine public hearings
from August 11 to 23.
The action, which is subject to Federal Aviation Administration
approval, is in response to a July 29, 2003, letter from Los
Angeles Mayor James K. Hahn to the Board expressing his support of
a City Council resolution passed that same day requesting the
extension to 120 days, beginning July 11, 2003, in order to provide
adequate time for the public process to occur.
In addition to calling for an extension of time for public
review and comment so that all stakeholder comments and suggestions
can be received, Mayor Hahn also requested three more hearings to
be scheduled in the fall during the October-early November time
frame. He encouraged the provision of ample time for the public to
understand the Enhanced Safety and Security Alternative and to
provide constructive feedback on how best to modernize LAX to
maintain and enhance its status as the premier international
gateway on the West Coast.
Los Angeles World Airports also received letters requesting an
extension of the public review and comment period from the
Neighborhood Council of Westchester/Playa del Rey, U.S.
Congressmember Maxine Waters, the City of El Segundo, the City of
Manhattan Beach, the South Bay Cities Council of Governments, the
Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce and others.
The dates and locations of the additional three public hearings
have not yet been determined.
