At the June 7 meeting of the Expo Line Board of Directors, the Board voted unanimously to approve a motion introduced by Director Paul Koretz to landscape Phase Two of the Expo Line with native plants "to the fullest extent possible along the alignment." The motion was passed as introduced.
Board members from Culver City, Santa Monica, and LA City and County came together in unity in favor of landscaping with our naturally occurring native plants wherever possible--a decision that will have longterm benefits for the region.
LA Native's work is not done! LA Native will continue to serve as liaison between environmental and transportation advocates to see that the will of the Board is carried out and that plants chosen have the best opportunity to thrive and compliment the mission of sustainable public transit. There is plenty of work to be done. Follow our progress on our website and LA Native Facebook page as we continue our journey toward a new kind of light rail landscaping.
