The Ports of Los Angeles (LA) and Long Beach have released an Initial Study/Notice of Preparation (IS/NOP) for the proposed Goods Movement Workforce Training Facility.
The Port of Los Angeles is the primary agency under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
The proposed project, located on Port of Los Angeles land in Wilmington, California, would be the first workforce training centre in the US dedicated to the goods transportation sector, with a concentration on training in sectors such as longshore labour, trucking, and warehousing.
The proposed institution, the first specialised training centre in the US for the goods transportation business, would operate for up to 30 years.
The IS/NOP is intended to solicit feedback, which helps to identify any potential environmental impacts and suggest possible alternatives for the project that can be incorporated into the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR).
According to the Port of Los Angeles, a virtual public meeting will be held for the proposed project at 4.00 pm (PST) on 22 February.
