>>Heh
>>Here is the info on the railroad we discussed at our monthly MCAT'S
>meeting.
>>The group in opposition has a web page
>>http://users.dundee.net/railyard/petition.htm
>>There are links there to maps, letters, meetings, impact etc.
>>The next meeting that I am aware of is Monday, June 14th 7:00 P.M. at the
>>Milan Middle School. This I believe is the zoning board's review of the
>>request for a variance for the property that the railroad is interested
in.
>>MCAT'S do not have an opinion as this currently is not being looked at as
>>damaging to air or water in Milan. This could at any time be brought up
for
>>review. However, the financial gain and number of local jobs being offered
>is
>>suspect. The additional flow of 60 trucks/hour on highway 23 [maybe routed
>>thru town on one of our frequent accident delays on 23], and additional
>rail
>>traffic thru town up thru Pittsfield, Ann Arbor and up to the Flint area.
>>With luck, while heading up north on vacation you could be lucky enough to
>>see the train 2-3 times.
>>If you don't yet have an opinion, please check out the web page [they meet
>>weekly also], and plan on attending the zoning meeting.
>>Happy Holiday Weekend
