The City of Beverly Hills is considering three potential options for a second entrance and exit to the Wilshire/Rodeo Subway Station (“North Portal”) being constructed as part of the LA Metro Purple Line Subway Extension.
The Chamber has recommended that the City proceed with a portal on North Beverly Drive which will be the most centralized location to access our business district. See the press release here.
The Chamber is also supportive of a proposed settlement agreement between the City and LA Metro which would have each party split the cost of a North Portal, provide restrooms at the Wilshire/Rodeo station, and permit work to continue expeditiously during the holidays while avoiding major impacts to businesses.

The Beverly Hills City Council will be considering this issue at the next meeting on November 10 and encourage all interested stakeholders to participate.
