Rancho Park Action - Parking or No Parking at Westwood Station of Expo Line?

Important decisions affecting the design and construction of the Expo Line Light Rail are coming up fast. This month, the Expo Board may vote on whether or not to incorporate a parking lot as part of the Westwood Station, which is expected to one of the busiest on the line. The current plan calls for building 170 parking spaces with an additional option to forgo the parking, and use it for park space. Sepulveda Blvd, about half a mile away, will have a parking lot.

This call for action was sent to me from Karen Leonard and Sarah Hays at Light Rail for Cheviot... 

"Please do write the Expo Board members asking them to support the No Parking option for the Westwood Expo Station to replace the baseline plan for 170 parking spaces.  (Light Rail for Cheviot and Friends 4 Expo have taken positions in favor of this option.) The Board seems likely to vote on that at its March 18 meeting."

Parking at either Westwood or Sepulveda will create a traffic nightmare and defeat the purpose of the line.  Having no parking at either place will force people who are serious about using public transport to actually use it and modes of transportation other than motor vehicles.
