PLANNING AND PROGRAMMING COMMITTEE NOVEMBER 20,2013 MOTION ORANGE LINE PIERCE COLLEGE STATION DIRECTORS YAROSLAVSKY, ANTONOVICH

AND KREKORIAN The Pierce College station along the Orange Line is one of the most important and heavily used stops along the corridor. This stop is immediately adjacent to a residential single family area. Residents say that the shortage of toilets has led some riders to create their own bathrooms in the alleys and narrow walkways that separate their backyards from the Orange Line thoroughfare. To address their concerns, the Winnetka Neighborhood Council requested that portable bathrooms be installed at the nearby park-and-ride lot. Moreover,there are problems of waste and garbage in the area along the noise-abatement wall owned by Metro, and along the alley, which is City of Los Angeles ROW. While Metro has along-standing policy not to install portable bathrooms except at major transportation hubs, we must look into the concerns raised by the Winnetka community and insure that all our stations are safe and clean. WE,THEREFORE, MOVE that the Board direct the CEO to have staff investigate the concerns raised by the Winnetka Neighborhood Council and to work with the City of Los Angeles to mitigate the problems associated with the lack of bathroom facilities at Pierce College Station. WE FURTHER MOVE that the Board direct the CEO to report back on these findings at the January Board meeting and present an implementation plan for installing portable bathrooms if these problems cannot be thoroughly mitigated. WE FURTHER MOVE that the Board direct the CEO to assess the potential need for bathrooms on our subway, light rail and bus rapid transit line stations and report back to the Operations Committee in 90 days.
