HIGH-SPEED RAIL UPDATE 
The California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority) has released a set of updated alignment alternatives that have been developed as a result of continued engineering and environmental technical evaluation, including environmental justice issues, as well as ongoing community and regulatory agency input. The three alignment alternatives that will be carried forward for study in the draft environmental document are illustrated below.



Although the refined routes would eliminate risks to our historic downtown and civic center areas (including the Police Department, City Hall, Public Works Operations Facilities, the San Fernando Middle School, and the Cesar Chavez Monument), our community remains vulnerable to the initially proposed route.

We need your help to continue to 
STOP THE HIGH-SPEED RAIL 
THROUGH SAN FERNANDO!



The City of San Fernando invites residents, business owners, and neighboring community members to attend the next California High-Speed Rail Authority Board Meeting on April 12, 2016. The Board Meeting will take place at the Anaheim Convention Center (800 W. Katella Ave., Anaheim), at 9:30 am.

The City of San Fernando is providing FREE transportation to the Board meeting. Buses to the Board Meeting will leave San Fernando at 6 am sharp!
