The project includes the construction of public safety facilities in downtown Los Angeles which were included under the Proposition Q (Public Safety Facilities) and F (Fire Facilities) bond measures approved by voters. A new 179,000 square-foot Metro Jail would be constructed south of Temple and Los Angeles Streets to replace the existing central jail at Parker Center at 150 N. Los Angeles Street. A new 82,000 square-foot Emergency Operations Center-Police Operations Center-Fire Dispatch Center (EOC-POC-FDC) would be constructed adjacent to the west of the new EOC-POC-FDC to replace the existing Fire Station No. 4 at 800 N. Main Street. The new fire station would contain a 147-space surface parking lot to the south with a small pocket of open space farther south on 1st Street. Related improvements such as street dedications and vacations would be provided for the facilities identified above. Construction of the project would start in late 2005/early 2006 and end by late 2007. The project would cause significant environmental impacts related to aesthetics, air quality, cultural resources, hazardous materials, noise and vibration, and traffic and parking. Most of these impacts would occur during construction. With the implementation of feasible mitigation measures, significant and unavoidable adverse impacts to aesthetics, air quality, historical resources, noise and vibration, and traffic would remain.
