BART to Livermore Public Meeting

From BART.gov:

The San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) is preparing a Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the proposed BART to Livermore Extension Project. The project, which is being developed in partnership with the City of Livermore, consists of a 4.8-mile BART extension from the existing Dublin/Pleasanton Station along I-580 to a new station in the vicinity of the Isabel Avenue/I-580 Interchange. The new station would incorporate an efficient bus to BART transfer, and also would include express bus services linking inter-regional rail service and Priority Development Areas in Livermore, and proposed offsite parking facilities.  BART is soliciting comments on the scope of the EIR, including alternatives, impacts and mitigation measures to be studied.

Public Meeting:
Wednesday, September 19, 2012
Robert Livermore Community Center, 4444 East Ave., Livermore, CA 94550 
6:00 pm – Open House  •  7:00 pm – Meeting and Public Comments
You may also comment by email using this form or via fax to (510) 464-7673. The deadline for receipt of comments is October 1, 2012.
