Metro Green Line Extension[edit]

Unfortunately, due to the abandonment of the easternmost extension of the Century Freeway (which provides the Green Line with most of its right-of-way) through the city, there is a gap of four miles between the Green Line's eastern terminus and the Metrolink stop at the Norwalk-Santa Fe Springs Transportation Center. MTA is currently exploring the possibility of extending the Green Line eastward along Imperial Highway to the Transportation Center.

  • I took this out of the active article, because althrough it is true, there is no plan to extend metro green line to the east, at least in the long range plan as it exists today. However, maybe it can be included in a section on future planning, as I am ever hopeful that public transit will continue to be built as our city and the region matures. --Gohiking 17:26, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

I have a question whether Pat Nixon belongs in the article for Norwalk. "Family bought a Truck Farm in Dairy Valley, formerly in Artesia, but now part of Cerritos." Artesia or Cerritos would be a better entry point, unless the area she lived in was formerly part of Norwalk. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Biblionaif (talkcontribs) 18:05, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

History[edit]

This section is in serious need of updating. I have made some grammatical changes, but the whole section seems to be a poorly plagiarized version of what is found at http://www.ci.norwalk.ca.us/norwalkinfo.asp. Biblionaif (talk) 04:29, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

The Government section needs updating[edit]

The Mayor isn't Jesse Luera Anymore!!!

UPDATE!!!

Notable people section[edit]

I removed Richard Brown from this section. The link went to a disambiguation link page, not a person's Wikipedia article. I could find no Richard Brown, baseball player, with a relationship to Norwalk. The information I removed is listed below n the event another editor can find the correct person this information refers to: "Richard Brown Major League Baseball Player Los Angeles Dodgers 1990-93 Oakland Athletics 1993-96" Thanks!--Fraulein451 (talk) 16:53, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
