Dear High Speed TRAIN Authority:
Given how much our communities have suffered and been damaged since August 14, 2014, when we were first “thrown under the train” by the “yellow banana,” we are pleased to be both involved enough and informed enough to provide enlightened and passionate feedback on the 2018 Business Plan.

Letter from David DePinto to CHSRA – June 17, 2016

Dear Chairman Richard:
On behalf of the united communities in the northeast San Fernando Valley, which includes several hundred thousand residents, I’m writing to again convey that your Agency’s follow-up on numerous public and elected official requests is inadequate and disappointing. Despite your public statements about increased transparency and your use of the term “harrassment” to describe our many, many efforts to get responses from your staff on numerous matters, as impacted stakeholders engaged in the Authority’s outreach program, we will not be ignored or marginalized.

We call for the Authority to be accountable and responsive to our concerns and issues. […]

Letter to CHSRA: Unrealistic EIR Schedule for HSR

Letter to HSR: Unrealistic EIR Schedule for HSR

March 10, 2015

Dear Michelle, Genoveva and other Interested Parties:

The scoping period for the planned environmental study period for the Palmdale to Burbank project section ended in mid-September 2014. At the series of community advisory committee meetings, including last night’s meeting at Sun Valley, it has been stated and is in print that the upcoming schedule or next steps for HSR includes:

June 2015 – CHSRA Board Meeting: SAA Report
June 2016 – Draft Environmental Document
June 2017 – Final Environmental Document

We believe that a 2-year schedule is unrealistic and misleading and should be corrected. In the […]
