Is this normal for life after the passage of Measure R or is Metro trying to make transit nerds go crazy?

Metro today announced the sixth, yes, the sixth public meeting about transit taking place this month. Projects seeking community input include the bicycle draft master plan (this one is actually under the jurisdiction of LADOT), bus lanes on Wilshire Blvd., the Crenshaw corridor to LAX, the Harbor corridor, the Rosa Parks station and now the Westside Subway Extension.

Described as a “roll-up-your sleeves” meeting, the attending public will have the "opportunity to review and discuss station locations and entrances, connections to and from the stations, and other issues," according to Metro's announcement.
