Meetings to Cover State Bullet Train

February 28, 2001

SOUTHLAND — The state authority that is developing a proposal for a statewide bullet train network will hold a public meeting today in Palmdale, another session Monday in Northridge and other upcoming Southland dates.

The 20-year, multibillion-dollar concept is for a high-speed, 700-mile train network that could link the Bay Area and Sacramento to the Central Valley, San Diego and Los Angeles. Trains would travel in excess of 200 mph, officials said.

The California High-Speed Rail Authority proposal is available on its Web page at:

Public meetings will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. at:

* Palmdale Playhouse, Antelope Valley Community Arts Center, 38334 10th St., tonight.

* Cal State Northridge, Grand Salon, 17950 Lassen St., Monday.

* East Los Angeles College, Student Center, 1301 Avenida Cesar Chavez, Monterey Park, Thursday.
