LAX Expansion Stakeholder Group Meeting

For those of you who are all to vocal about the recent developments regarding LAX, I bring you a snippet from Councilwoman Cindy Miscikowski's January E-News 2005 (to her credit, I applaud her for making this meeting known to the public in advance. Certainly not what we have learned to expect from most of the antics in City Hall):

LAX UPDATE- Mark Your Calendars - On February 3rd at 6 pm, the first meeting of the Stakeholder Group for the LAX Master Plan will take place. It will be led by Bob Gilbert, the interim Stakeholder Liaison. In this first meeting, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) will explain the LAX Master Plan implementation process and engage all stakeholders in an ongoing dialogue regarding LAX Master Plan decisions. Presentations will be given on the LAX Master Plan stakeholder liaison duties and responsibilities; how stakeholders are included in the LAX Master Plan implementation process, and status of the LAX Master Plan approval process and the LAX Master Plan advanced planning process.

My staff and I will attend and participate in the Stakeholder meeting. Additionally, representatives of the Mayor's office and members of the LAX Master Plan Advanced Planning Team will also be present. The meeting will take place at the Westin Los Angeles Airport Hotel. The hotel is located at 5400 West Century Blvd., Los Angeles. Parking will be validated. If you have additional questions about the Stakeholder Group or LAX in general, please contact David Kissinger of my staff at (310)568-8772. I look forward to seeing you there!
If there were ever an opportunity to be heard, this sounds like a good one!

Is this the same Bob Gilbert of URS Corp. that claimed that now former Airport Commission Pres. Ted Stein shook him down for a campaign contribution to stop San Fernando Valley cityhood? And when URS didn't pay up, their contract on LAX expansion work was cut?

Yup. Same guy. Probably needed to do something to back them off so that they wouldn't sue and more heat from the feds wouldn't come down.

Same thing happened to Rand........made a lot of noise, Mayor felt threatened as a result of actions his staff took so.......he hired them too.

Anyone who wants a contract with the City, it seems, just needs to tell what Mayor's staff has done........and then they will get a job !!

Sad and sorry state or CITY to be exact.

Cindy Miscikowski's plan for LAX will turn the Westside into the 405. If you live around LAX and you thought it couldn't get worse, just wait a few years. Check out Rosendahl's plan to limit LAX expansion www.billrosendahl.com
