This will not be your only opportunity to participate, but it will be an IMPORTANT one. Attend, see the plans, ask your questions, give your thoughts and CONNECT for future information and events.

    We are completely against running trains through our neighborhoods carrying toxic and radioactive waste. Are you out of your minds? These substances shouldn’t be anywhere near residential populations and you want to run them though people’s back yards. The risks are not worth any amount of money. It only takes one accident to subject residents to severe health risks. Prepare for lawsuits. Property values will diminish based solely on this transit. There’s nothing to discuss here. Absolutely not!. Not now, not ever!

    I am appalled at the proposal to send trains with toxic material through the neighborhood. This is ridiculous. An accident could cause irrepairable damage.
    In addition, the increased noise pollution will be intolerable. This must not be permitted.
