The Port of Los Angeles is asking the public to weigh in on an initial environmental study regarding the proposed John S. Gibson Truck & Chassis Parking Lot, the port said Oct. 26.

The Initial Study/Notice of Preparation helps the port look for possible environmental effects from the project at 1599 John S. Gibson Blvd., where an 18.63-acre site would be developed into a short-term parking lot for trucks and chassis.

The site, not on land owned by the port, would be geared toward parking that does not exceed more than a 24-hour period. The project also calls for paving and striping for spaces that could accommodate about 393 trucks and chassis.

The project would need an amendment to the Port of Los Angeles Master Plan.

Public feedback is expected to be part of the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR).

Stakeholders may submit comments at a virtual public meeting via Zoom at 4 p.m. Nov. 14. Registration isn’t required and Spanish translation is expected to be available.

Written comments can also be sent by Dec. 11 to ceqacomments@portla.org or by mail to the Director of Environmental Management, Los Angeles Harbor Department, 425 South Palos Verdes St., San Pedro, CA 90731.

Comments sent by email must include the project title “John S. Gibson Truck & Chassis Parking Lot Project” in the subject line.

More information is available at www.portoflosangeles.org/ceqa, or by contacting the port’s Environmental Management Division at (310) 732-3615.
