NOTICE OF BOARD OF AIRPORT COMMISOINERS
Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Terminal 1.5 Project
(City Clerk #NG-16-274-AD)
The Chief Executive Officer/Executive Director (Executive Director) of the City of Los Angeles, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), in accordance with the provisions of the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Specific Plan (Ordinance No. 184348), Section 7, LAX Plan Compliance Review; has reviewed the proposed Terminal 1.5 Project (Proposed Project) for LAX Plan Compliance.
As a result of this review, the Executive Director has found (1) that the Proposed Project is consistent with the LAX Plan, any design guidelines required by the LAX Plan, and all applicable provisions of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). and, that the applicable measures contained in the LAX Master Plan Mitigation, Monitoring and Reporting Program (MMRP) or identified in any subsequent environmental review have been incorporated into the proposed project to the extent feasible.
Based upon these findings, the Executive Director recommends that the Board of Airport Commissioners (BOAC) and the Los Angeles City Council grant the request for LAX Plan Compliance approval for the Proposed Project. If BOAC agrees with the recommendation, it shall make the same findings referenced above and recommend to the City Council that it approve the request for LAX Plan Compliance. BOAC intends to consider this recommendation at a meeting to be held on Thursday, December 1, 2016, at 10:30 AM, at 1 World Way, Los Angeles, California. At that time, BOAC will also consider adoption of the Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) and MMRP for the Proposed Project, as well as approval of the Proposed Project.
The Proposed Project would construct a structure on an open area between Terminal 1 and 2 at LAX to improve existing passenger processing, improve passenger quality of service, and provide additional space to help meet federal security requirements. The Proposed Project would include passenger and baggage screening, ticketing, and baggage claim facilities in support of existing operations within Terminal 1 and 2; a secure passenger connection (i.e.. enclosed/controlled corridor) between existing Terminal 1 and 2; and office and support space. The Terminal 1.5 Project and environmental documents are available online on LAWA’s website at www.ourlax.org.
