Courier Right and MTA Wrong
Today’s edition of the Beverly Hills Courier reveals the “Final EIS/EIR” of the Metropolitan Transit Authority analyzing the location of the Century City subway station. As reported in The Courier, two locations in the report avoid tunneling under Beverly Hills High School and one location calls for tunneling under BHHS.
This afternoon, the MTA released an email from Jody Litvak, Regional Communications Manager, disputing the Courier’s story. Ms. Litvak alleges that the Courier’s story “might be read” to imply that a final selection has been made. The article clearly states no such decision has been made and in fact reports that the final decision will be made in “Late Summer/Early Fall 2011” when the complete final EIS/EIR is released.
The Courier has posted the entire MTA document online at www.bhcourier.com so that readers can decide for themselves. Ms. Litvak further states that MTA has requested for a “retraction” of the story. The Courier has not received any such request. The Courier stands behind its story as published.
