Each meeting will begin with a 30-minute open forum, during which participants can review displays, obtain handouts and receive forms for submitting written comments.

Following a brief presentation, the public can provide oral comments regarding the VA’s Draft Master Plan. Those who cannot attend or who prefer to provide written comments should mail no later than June 30 to:  VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System, Attn: EIS/EIR Program Manager, 11301 Wilshire Blvd., Bldg. 500/Rm. 6409, Los Angeles, CA 90073. Email comments may be be sent to VHAGLAMasterPlan@va.gov.

The EIS/EIR will evaluate a range of alternatives, including no action, for potential ways to reconfigure and redevelop the West Los Angeles campus, expand points of access, provide additional housing for homeless veterans, and better serve the health care needs of veterans over the next 20 to 30 years.
