Investing in Place congratulates Metro staff on the release of the draft Measure M Guidelines for public review. These guidelines mark a key step toward the implementation of Measure M’s promise to provide Los Angeles County residents with access to a safe, reliable, affordable, and sustainable transportation system. Investing in Place reviewed the draft guidelines with an eye toward how implementation of Measure M projects and programs will translate into improvements on the ground in communities throughout the county.
In April, we released an analysis of the draft guidelines that reviewed their strengths and weaknesses and included preliminary recommendations for improvements. Since that time, we have continued to engage public agency and COG staff, policy experts, and partner organizations to refine these recommendations. Based on our research and discussions, we offer the following specific recommendations for improving the draft guidelines in our comment letter to Metro.
Comment letters on the draft guidelines are due on Friday May 26th. We encourage all our partners to submit letters, borrow ideas from ours, or sign on to our letter.
