The Southern California Regional office of the California High-Speed Rail Authority will holding community open house meetings during the first two weeks of December in the Palmdale to Burbank section. Last August, public meetings for this section were held in Burbank and other communities. Over 950 people attended and more than 1,050 comments were received, according to Rachel Kesting, information officer for the regional office of the authority. All comments reportedly will be included in the Authority’s Scoping Report currently under final review by the agency.

The meetings are being held to provide opportunity for the public to be involved and aware of the process to bring high-speed rail to Southern California. The next meeting in Burbank will be the second Monday in December at the Buena Vista Library. That meeting will focus on new information for the set of alternatives under consideration for the Palmdale to Burbank Project Section.

Alternatives alignments between Palmdale and Burbank are through two corridor areas:

· Corridor A – along the SR14 corridor – refinements will be presented

· Corridor B – along a Utility corridor through the San Gabriel Mountains

More information about the specific changes to these corridors will be available at the community open house meetings via maps, aerial animations, and from authority staffers on hand.
