Lawsuit filed against Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) and Los Angeles City for failure to prepare adequate Environmental Impact Report.

No airport can be absolutely safe unless it is closed—but closing LAX would be unacceptable to ARSAC. We need LAX, but there is no such thing as unlimited resources and LAWA’s misguided prioritization of spending means billions of dollars could be spent on unnecessary runway movement while diverting funds from the most needed repairs and updates.

ARSAC supports building the environmentally preferred alternative, Alternative 2. LAWA has identified taxiway improvements for the existing runway layout that should be done immediately. It is a moderate cost and practical to improve LAX and improve safety.

Airport Update -February 2014

Yet another active month of airport affairs for Southern California. It's nice to see at least someone is preparing for Regionalism. Burbank Bob Hope Airport hasn't increased passenger numbers lately, but is invoking several improvements which will put Bob Hope in a good future position. Not only are they increasing and building new, improved terminal flow, but they are also improving transportation access with a metro link stop adjacent to the airport along with improved parking and van/bus/taxi access.

Los Angeles World Airport, LAWA, can't be accused of the same. There has been NO movement to resolve getting a train into LAX, nor anything to get the people mover system designed nor planning the Consolidated Rental Car System. Local vehicle traffic flow is equally stagnant.

LAWA reported another month of increased concentration of passenger traffic at LAX with a corresponding reduction at the other LAWA owned commercial airport, Ontario. LAWA is no longer even pretending they have a plan for commercial air service in Palmdale.

LAWA is continues as the full employment program for lawyers.

Airport Report -December 2013

Regionalization of So Cal Airport Traffic remains stifled with the vast majority of passengers still using LAX despite some well-planned upgrades at Bob Hope, Long Beach, and John Wayne airports. Despite these airports’ terminal and transportation improvements, the number of passengers at LAX nominally increased. As it stands, the LAX area accommodates an extra 1.4 million cars due to the decrease in Ontario passengers who instead go to LAX. The lawsuit for ONT self-determination is about to move forward late this year.

The facts show this just isn't true.
