Speaking out about the rail crossing study
The documentation provided to the council members listed project goals that included "iconic status," but not cost. While the council is hoping for grant money to pay for construction, the expensive study and further development south of the tracks are paid for with local taxpayer dollars.
A grant-funded funded project to build a lower-cost passenger overpass was ready to go and would have been completed last year. It was scrapped to pursue this study.
