Message from the Executive Director

Gina Marie Lindsey
Welcome to the Specific Plan Amendment Study (SPAS) website. We’ve heard ideas and opinions from many different airport constituencies in recent years, and a consensus is taking shape. Los Angeles wants to be proud of LAX. We all seek to create an airport that improves its ability to serve a demanding worldwide audience without compromising its responsibilities as a neighbor and engine of our local economy. Our current efforts continue a long planning process to modernize the airport to reflect its critical role as a gateway to Los Angeles. As you visit our airport, you will see that the work to improve LAX is already underway. We have made progress with several critical projects: the Tom Bradley International Terminal Project, which will re-establish LAX as a modern U.S. gateway in a competitive global market; a new south airfield with a centerline taxiway to improve safety; a new utility plant that will more efficiently provide heating and cooling to our existing and planned facilities; and improvements to our baggage handling system. We are now undertaking a study of the unresolved elements of the LAX Master Plan, known as the Specific Plan Amendment Study or “SPAS.” This website provides a useful snapshot of the various airfield, terminal, and ground transportation options that will help LAX better serve the needs of its varied constituencies. While I can’t anticipate the outcome, I can assure you that we will make every effort to listen, provide the best information available, and deliver a program for LAX that is efficient, safe, sustainable, feasible, and financially responsible. I invite you to learn more and make your voice heard. Together, we can be part of a process we can all be proud of.
