The Los Angeles city council may slow the pace of Mayor James K. Hahns (D) proposed $9-billion master plan for Los Angeles International Airport. The citys Board of Airport Commissioners approved a plan to issue a request for proposals for design consultants this fall. But only days later, Councilwoman Cindy Miscikowski moved to delay the selection of a consultant until the Federal Aviation Administration and the city council approved Hahns proposal. The motion, which has the support of several other council members, states that a fast-track approach to design is inappropriate for the controversial proposal, which has drawn mixed reviews so far from airlines, public officials and other stakeholders. Hahn is hoping to fast-track environmental review of the security-centered proposal in order to kick off a phased, 11-year construction program in late 2004 (ENR 7/28 p. 15).
