To My West Long Beach Neighbors:

The following link is direct to the Port of Los Angeles site pages where the Draft Environmental Impact Report is located for online viewing or downloading.

I originally assembled the various portions of the report into a single document.  Even with a broad band server, the document size (4,690 pages) was simply too large for site visitors to load online. The page below is what you will see when you click the link above. The links there are functional; links below are not.

Please feel free to call me if you have any questions at all. Mike Ford, (714) 366 9404. Thank you for your interest in bettering our community, and our economy.
