Councilmember Kevin McKeown


After a survey of other locations for the Expo maintenance yard, the question remained:  did Expo use wrong criteria?  Shouldn’t a yard next to homes have been ruled out?

Also posted:  videos about the general alignment; my initial reaction to a yard in our Pico neighborhood; what impacts we must make sure Expo commits to fully mitigate; shock at Expo’s expanded proposal; and my environmental challenge.
