The project’s goal is to provide a fast and affordable bus line that will service a corridor that sees more than 700,000 daily trips. The new line would utilize electric buses.
Metro recently completed an Alternatives Analysis and is now evaluating a refined set of routes and station locations as part of the Environmental Impact Report. Throughout the environmental process Metro will continue collaborating with cities and communities along the corridor.

The public meetings are designed to solicit input from the community pertaining to environmental issues, route options, mitigation measures and other issues that should be addressed in the Draft Environmental Impact Report.

2019 Nov 10 -Toluca Lake Turkey Trot

7th Annual Turkey Trot attracts runners and local families to partake in the festivities. Hosted by the Toluca Lake Homeowners Association, it was decided all proceeds would go towards the East Valley PALS program. East Valley Pals is a non-profit booster organization for the North Hollywood Division of the Los Angeles Police Department. They provide financial support for the men and women of the LAPD. It often comes as a surprise to the average Angeleno how difficult it is for the city to pay for some essential equipment, training, and special events. PALS attempts to bridge that gap. The North Hollywood Police Dept. has always been there to support Toluca Lake, so this was an opportunity to give back.


Community Police Academy – May 6th

LAPD is expanding their resources by deploying volunteers wherever possible to free up officers to do what they do best. You can now get trained to volunteer in a variety of capacities. You must be 18 or older, have no felony convictions, outstanding warrants, or pending criminal cases and live or work in the Operations Valley Bureau area. Classes are Mondays for 8 weeks.
