Santa Monica

Councilmember Kevin McKeown


Thanks to the passage of Prop R by over two-thirds of County voters, Santa Monica may have light rail by 2015.  Where should the trains go? How should the Expo Line be integrated with bicycles, buses, etc.?

a maintenance yard in our Pico neighborhood; some reservations on the site selection criteria; impacts we must mitigate; shock at Expo’s expanded proposal; and my CEQA challenge.

Want to get involved in the planning for the Expo Line into Santa Monica?  Remember, the final decisions will be made not by our City Council but by the Expo Construction Authority.  The Final Environmental Impact Report has now been certified, clearing the way for engineering and design work to commence.  See the latest on the Expo Authority website, and comment by mail to
