After two public hearings and long discussions over the course of a month, the Burbank City Council has approved a $120-million transit center for Bob Hope Airport.
The original proposal had been postponed to allow city officials to clarify the city's role in approving landscaping and so-called green street features for the project.
The transportation hub will consolidate rental car facilities and bus transit on current airport property, a covered moving walkway to the airport terminal and the second compressed natural gas fueling station in Burbank.
The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority has already entered into contracts with two firms to draw up design and construction documents.
"The next step is actual, working construction documents," airport spokesman Victor Gill said. The airport authority "should be ready to go out to bid in spring 2011."
