The project has been approved by the City Planning Department, and residents are preparing a final appeal to the Area Planning Commission. For more information visit: neutralives.org

This Saturday: railLA Asks LA to Think Big About High-speed Rail

Urban planner and artist James Rojas believes he has found a way to develop community consensus through design and provide a process for the public to envision their ideal California High-Speed Rail project, which is now in the process of finalizing its track alignments in Northern and Southern California. A demonstration of the pioneering technique he describes as Interactive Planning will be held July 17 from 11:00 a.m to 2:00 p.m. at the Pico House in the El Pueblo district of Los Angeles. Interactive models of the 30/10 scenario for Los Angeles County and Union Station with High-Speed Rail will also be on display.

Organized by railLA and sponsored jointly by California Speaker of the Assembly John Perez and Los Angeles City Councilmember Jose Huizar, the event is intended to gather public input on how the area around Union Station will best adapt to the introduction of high-speed rail.
