In October 2011, a series of community meetings were held introducing this transit study, which initially included only the Van Nuys Boulevard corridor between Ventura Boulevard and the I-210 freeway. As a result of public input, the project study area has now been expanded to include Sepulveda Boulevard and the Sylmar/San Fernando Metrolink Station as a northern terminus/origination point.
Initial alternatives under consideration as part of the AA include bus rapid transit, light rail transit, streetcar, a "No Build" alternative and a transportation systems management alternative aimed at better managing the flow of traffic along the corridor.
The community meetings will take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the following locations.
• Thursday, April 12, 2012, City of San Fernando Regional Pool Facility, Aquatic Center Multipurpose Room, 201 Park Avenue, San Fernando.
• Tuesday, April 17, 2012, Cathedral of St. Mary Byzantine Catholic Church Auditorium, 5329 Sepulveda Boulevard, Sherman Oaks.
• Wednesday, April 18, 2012, Valley Presbyterian Hospital Auditorium, Jean & David Fleming Health Education Center, 15107 Vanowen Street, Van Nuys.
