A community meeting on the California high-speed rail project is set to begin this evening at 5 p.m. in Burbank. This is the latest in a series of open house meetings to update locals on the first high-speed rail system in the nation, expected to run 800 miles from Sacramento to San Diego. Around twenty-four stations are being planned in the system — one is in Burbank.
This evening’s meeting will focus on the alternatives under consideration for the Palmdale to Burbank section, which will travel from the Palmdale Transportation Center through the Antelope Valley and San Fernando Valley to the Burbank airport. The meeting will be held at the Buena Vista Library 300 North Buena Vista Street. The event is sponsored by the California High Speed Rail Authority.
