Orange County residents today will have an opportunity to voice their opinions regarding the effects the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center, or ARTIC, development plan will have on the environment.
Anaheim city officials will hold a public scoping meeting on the matter from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Anaheim West Tower’s Gordon Hoyt Conference room at 201 S. Anaheim Blvd.
The focus of the event will be on the city’s environmental impact report, which contains information about the construction and operation of the ARTIC project. Once complete, ARTIC would replace the existing Metrolink/Amtrak station located south of Katella Avenue and west of the 57 Freeway. The designated site for ARTIC is a 16-acre area owned by the Orange County Transportation Authority and the city of Anaheim.
ARTIC will eventually serve as a hub for Orange County and the region, a landmark where freeways, major arterials, bus routes and Orange County’s backbone rail transit system converge. The network of transit choices will continue to grow in the coming years as the number of Metrolink and Amtrak trains serving Anaheim and local and express bus routes increase. ARCTIC will accommodate these services as well as plans for future high-speed train service to destinations such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Ontario and Las Vegas, in addition to the Anaheim Rapid Connection fixed-guideway system. Completion is expected by mid 2013.
