Another round of outreach meetings kicks off tomorrow for Metro's Regional Connector, a project proposed to link the Blue Line and Expo Line to the Gold Line and Eastside Extension. Four meetings in the next week offer weekend, daytime and evening time slots.

While the round really kicked off with a Thursday night session in Pasadena, the Downtown meetings get started on Saturday, November 7. The project team will be at the Wurlitzer Building (818 S. Broadway) from 10am to noon.

On Tuesday, November 10, they will be at the Central Library Board Room from noon to 1:30pm, and on Thursday, November 12, the team will be at the Japanese American National Museum from 2 - 3:30pm and 6:30 - 8pm.

The Metro board voted in September to submit the Regional Connector and the Westside subway extension to the Federal government for funding. There is intense debate over how the project will interact with Little Tokyo, however. The community last week asked Metro to reopen study of a fully-underground routing.
