“They’re coming through our city, and they want us to provide 2,000 parking spots,” Mayor Gary Bric said. “I don’t see how they can dictate to us where things go.”
The most obvious concern of local officials has been the site of the proposed station. The two sites being considered are along Front Street south of Burbank Boulevard and around Flower Street where the rail crosses Alameda Avenue.
While the Front Street location is close enough to the city’s downtown Metrolink station to possibly prevent a relocation, the other stop would likely reopen those questions, Kriske said.
