Two public meetings will take place this month for public comment on the draft environmental impact report for a proposed extension of the Orange Line bus route. The open houses take place March 19 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the multipurpose room of NEW Academy, 21425 Cohasset St., Canoga Park; and March 26 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Chancellor Hall, Chatsworth High School, 10027 Lurline Ave., Chatsworth. The proposed four-mile extension links the Canoga Park station of the Orange Line with the Chatsworth Metrolink station. The options under consideration by Metro are extending the Orange Line on an exclusive right-of-way; operating the busway on a bus-only lane of a widened Canoga Avenue; transit system improvements and operational enhancements; and not building the extension. All comments gathered at the meetings will be incorporated into the final environmental impact report.
