|Notice of Public Scoping Meeting for the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC) Draft Environmental Impact Report|
ANAHEIM, CA - (February 23, 2010) - The City of Anaheim is hosting a Public Scoping Meeting for the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC) Draft Environmental Impact Report, and the public is invited to attend, review project information, and offer comments and feedback. The meeting will take place on February 24 from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. at Anaheim West Tower (Gordon Hoyt Conference Room) in Downtown Anaheim (201 S. Anaheim Blvd., Anaheim, CA 92805).
ARTIC will serve as a hub for Orange County and the region, a landmark where freeways, major arterials, bus routes and Orange County’s backbone rail transit system converge. The network of transit choices will continue to grow in the coming years as the number of Metrolink and Amtrak trains serving Anaheim and local and express bus routes increase. ARTIC will accommodate these services as well as plans for future high speed train service to destinations such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Ontario and Las Vegas, in addition to the Anaheim Rapid Connection fixed-guideway system (www.anaheimfixedguideway.com). Completion date is expected mid 2013.
The City of Anaheim is responsible for preparing the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR). This draft contains information regarding the construction/operation of the ARTIC Project. ARTIC is planned to take the place of the existing Metro link/Amtrak station located south of Katella Avenue and west of the Orange Freeway. The designated site for ARTIC is a 16-acre site owned by the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) and the City of Anaheim, and is situated south of Katella Avenue, east of SR-57 and Douglas Road, and west of the Santa Ana River.
Parking for the meeting is located at the City of Anaheim Parking Structure (behind City Hall, 200 S. Anaheim Blvd.). The parking structure can be accessed from Anaheim Blvd., north on 42nd Street. Anaheim West Tower is located directly across the street from City Hall.
