Citizens for a Modern LAX: Modernization Yes, Expansion No!

We strongly support modernization at LAX, including certain key improvements to the airfield, the passenger terminals, and ground transportation systems...without expansion into neighboring communities. Please sign this petition and let your local elected officials know of your support of Alternatives 2 and 9!

Alternatives 2 & 9 are the smart choices to build a world-class airport while protecting neighboring communities from Westchester and Venice to Culver City and Inglewood, and from the San Fernando Valley and Brentwood to the South Bay, and to promote a much needed regional approach to LA’s aviation traffic.  Alternative 2 rebuilds and modernizes the northern terminals and runways without the reconfiguration of the north runway, for a third of the cost and without the construction and environmental nightmares that occur with the dramatic revision of LAX that is proposed under Alternative 1. Alternative 2 was selected in LAWA’s EIR as the “Environmentally Superior Alternative” and is safe, operationally efficient, and environmentally responsible. Alternative 9 favors a MetroRail/LAX connection that will enhance regional access to/from LAX.
