Document Description
Phase 2B of the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension (Project) is a 12.3-mile extension of the existing Metro Gold Line Light Rail Transit line from its current terminus in the City of Azusa, located in Los Angeles County, to the Montclair Transcenter, located in San Bernardino County. See map of project location in Figure NOP-1. In 2013, the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority (“Authority”) certified a Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) and approved the Project. A detailed description of the Project is included in the FEIR and four addenda thereto adopted by the Authority (State Clearinghouse No. 2010121069). In 2019, the Authority also certified a Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (SEIR) to the 2013 FEIR which addressed changes to the phasing of construction and operation of the Project and identified a new traffic/transportation mitigation measure. The Authority is considering modifications to the Project to construct surface parking lots (instead of enclosed parking structures, as previously approved) at the Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, and Pomona Stations as shown on Figures NOP-2 through NOP-5. Constructing surface lots would reduce the number of available parking spaces. To accommodate the reconfigured parking conditions, the Authority proposes increasing the property size of the Glendora and San Dimas Stations, and a property location change at the Pomona Station. No changes are proposed for the location or property size in La Verne. Changed vehicle and pedestrian access and new or relocated turnabouts are also proposed. Additional changes are proposed by the Authority that will result in a reduction of parking at the Claremont Station. Two Claremont options will be considered wherein reduced parking is accommodated either fully in a parking structure or via parking surface lot combined with leasing of additional parking spaces from available locations within 1/4 mile of the Claremont Station (Figures NOP-6a and NOP-6b). Provision for parking structure or surface lot at the Claremont Station will occur within the same location and footprint identified and cleared in Addendum 2 to the 2013 FEIR. In response to these proposed changes, the Authority will be initiating the preparation of a SEIR to evaluate the potential for significant impacts that may result from the potential changes at the five stations. Multiple scenarios that include interim and full build terminus station conditions will be evaluated. Pursuant to Public Resources Code Section 21092.6(a), the reconfigured parking areas are not located on a hazardous waste site per Section 65962.5 of the California Government Code (Cortese List).
