INGLEWOOD — The City Council will hold a public hearing at 2 p.m. April 5 on the Inglewood Transit Connector Project.
The proposed automated people mover will connect the Crenshaw Rail Line to the Forum, SoFi Stadium, and the Intuit Dome.
The 1.6-mile route will run along Market Street, across Manchester Boulevard and down Prairie Avenue.
The transit connector will be elevated and run along the west side of the street, directly in the path of long-time businesses.
The city will consider the certification of the environmental impact report on the project as well as general plan amendments to modify the land use, safety and circulation elements of the city’s general plan.
Also up for discussion is a zoning change to establish a transportation corridor overlay zone and a zoning code amendment.
The council also expects top establish design standards and guidelines for the project.
Public comments can be submitted to Deputy City Clerk Angela Allen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The meeting will be shown on Spectrum Channel 35 (with no ability to give public comment), on the city’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/cityofinglewood) or by calling in on the numbers on the city council agenda. The Library Lecture hall has also reopened for residents wishing to attend and give comment in person.
