This survey is best described by Mark Twin as "Liars, Damn Liars, and Statistics!". The Public Hearing was very lively with a strong Westchester turnout! There were basically two options being promoted by LAWA - both share the same ground transportation and central terminal area upgrade plan called alternative 9. The major difference between the two options was the North runway and taxiway plan. Alternative 1&9 was favored by about half a dozen Union representatives; it moves the runway 260 feet north and requires Lincoln to be routed into a tunnel to connect to Sepulveda. Alternative 2&9 does not require moving the north runway or a Lincoln tunnel. Alternatives 1 & 2 are being considered mainly to accommodate a small number of "Group 6" aircraft - which currently means the A380 - this aircraft already operates at LAX. Alternative 1 costs about $750 million, and 2 about $250 million. It was felt that the $500 million cost difference could be used to greatly improve the central terminal area and ground transportation. Alternative 1 claims "safety" improvements, however, a NASA study refutes that claim. Maxine Waters was very supportive of Alternative 2, as were the Westchester and Playa del Rey speakers. It appears there is not an agreed to "Regional Plan for LAX" that involves LAWA and Metrolink. Opponents of Alternative 2 that moves the North runway flight path and noise footprint north by 260' need to become as vocal as possible to prevent LAWA from moving ahead with Alternative 1.

Wow. It's a shame that the citizens in Westchester don't have any representation on the L.A. City Council. Electing Union funding hacks who don't give a crap about anything or any one sure makes the citizens look stupid.
Maybe next election the citizens will wake up and stop voting for Taxation without Representation for all non Union families in Los Angeles. Probably not. The citizens of L.A. just too stupid to handle self government. You vote to screw your own families. Enjoy seeing your property values plummet once again Westchester...The L.A City Hall Gang will win and you will Lose....AGAIN!
