Santa Monica

Councilmember Kevin McKeown


If the regional Metro board forces Santa Monica to allow a quasi-industrial rail maintenance yard in our Pico neighborhood, next to homes, what can we do to protect people?

More videos:  the general route alignment; my initial reaction to a yard; whether the studies that selected this clearly inappropriate site were based on flawed criteria; shock at Expo’s expanded proposal; and my environmental challenge.
