The Inglewood City Council will delay a crucial vote on the Inglewood Transit Connector Project until April 12, at 2pm.
The city council met Tuesday, April 5, with a scheduled public hearing on the matter being pushed back. Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts was not present for the meeting, with Councilman Eloy Morales serving as mayor pro-tem.
Staff sought approval to certify the environmental impact report, establish a Transportation Corridor Overlay Zone, establish design standards, and make zoning changes. The City has yet to establish whether the project is fully funded, despite receiving close to $400 million of the estimated $1 billion dollar price tag.
The proposed automated people mover will connect Metro’s Crenshaw Line to the Forum, SoFi Stadium, and the Intuit Dome.
The 1.6 mile route will run along Market Street, across Manchester Blvd, and down Prairie.
The transit connector will be elevated and run along the west side of the street, directly in the path of long-time businesses.
Public comments related to the proposed overlay zone, costs, and traffic mitigation efforts, can continue to be submitted to Deputy City Clerk Angela Allen firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com .
Residents can participate by viewing the meeting on either Spectrum Channel 35, or the City’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/cityofinglewood).
The Library Lecture hall has reopened for residents wishing to attend, and give comment in person.
Councilman Alex Padilla urged residents to reach out to their councilmember to answer any questions they may have.
