|Anaheim City Council Certifies Environmental Impact Report for the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC)|
ANAHEIM, CA - (September 29, 2010) - The ARTIC (Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center) Project continues to build momentum. At tonight's City Council meeting, City Council members certified the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and approved a General Plan Amendment reclassifying Douglass Road, south of Katella Avenue from a local street to a secondary arterial. On September 13, the City of Anaheim Planning Commission conducted a public hearing and recommended the items be approved by the City Council.
The ARTIC Project will inject approximately $184 million into the local economy and will create 5,000 new jobs. Full development will take place over the next decade. Construction is set to begin in 2011.
The ARTIC Project is envisioned as an iconic regional landmark and transportation facility where people will seamlessly move between transit services to reach Southern California activity centers and business districts. The station will accommodate passenger arrivals, departures and transfers with supporting retail, restaurants and passenger services within the building. ARTIC will be built on 16-acre site owned by the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) and the City of Anaheim.
