LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors are expected to discuss next week a motion which questions whether Los Angeles World Airports has complied with a 2006 settlement that required the agency to redistribute air traffic throughout the region.

The item was introduced at Tuesday's meeting but was moved into closed session. It was later announced the item had been continued to next week.

The five-member board on Tuesday morning heard from several residents and employees of Los Angeles International Airport about their concerns over the modernization plans and the possible economic and environmental effects that could result.

The residents addressed a motion introduced by Supervisor Don Knabe that would force Los Angeles World Airports to comply with a 2006 settlement that required the agency to redistribute air traffic to airports throughout the region.

"(LAWA) management's plan can only be regarded as a violation of the 2006 stipulated settlement agreement and is a way to thwart efforts of regionalization. Instead, it will concentrate traffic at LAX," Linda Edelman, a resident of Playa Del Rey told the board this week.
