LA City Council Rail Resolution Passes Unanimously

This morning a RailPAC resolution supporting the construction of double track between Van Nuys and Chatsworth and the building of a second platform at Van Nuys station was passed unanimously by the City Council meeting at Van Nuys.
Paul Dyson, RailPAC president, spoke in favor of the motion, which was proposed by Council members Tom LaBonge and Greig Smith.

Combined with letters and resolutions from the Cities of Burbank and Glendale, the Burbank Glendale Pasadena Airport Authority, Metrolink and the LACMTA, RailPAC hopes this resolution will help persuade the Federal Railroad administration to approve a grant under the HSIPR legislation to fund preliminary engineering and environmental work for the project.  The LACMTA has the matching funds available.
