Anaheim Issues Notice of Availability of a Draft EIR for the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC)
ANAHEIM, CA - (July 19, 2010) - The City of Anaheim is issuing a Notice of Availability (NOA) of a Draft Environmental Impact Report for the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC).  The City is seeking public comments on the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR), which identifies environmental effects anticipated with the construction and operation of ARTIC.

ARTIC

ARTIC, a state-of-the-art transportation facility, will serve as a hub for Orange County and the entire Southern California region.  Located within the Platinum Triangle, ARTIC will provide a centralized location for transit services including Amtrak, Metrolink, OCTA bus, future California High-Speed Rail, and Nevada California Super Speed Train. 

In 2005, OCTA and the City of Anaheim jointly purchased land for ARTIC and have secured federal and state funding for the construction of the project.  Since the purchase of the land, plans have moved full-steam ahead for the development of this dynamic mixed-use activity center, which will include retail, restaurants, civic space and passenger services.   Pending the approval of the environmental document, construction of ARTIC is set to begin in 2011 with completion in 2013.  

ARTIC is situated south of Katella Avenue, east of SR-57 and Douglass Road, and west of the Santa Ana River.  The transportation center will inject approximately $184 million into the local economy and will create 3,500 new jobs.
