Five Points rail route favored
Post date: Aug 4, 2010 12:12:34 PM
Today's N&O has indicated that the task force and other city staff have indicated to city council that they favor the Norfolk Southern Route. Council has not voted yet and have scheduled a public hearing on August 31to hear from residents, businesses and other concerned citizens. Shane Trahan will likely attend this meeting and will draft up a letter to read before council. A draft letter will be sent out to the group and although we do not have a CAC meeting to approve a statement of position it is important that council and the Five Points community know that we do support Rail and want the impact to be minimal. Please let Shane know if you have any thoughts on this matter.
