Re: “High-speed rail hearing tonight: "Alt. NC1/NC2" route gaining?

Rush jobs always have major libilities on the back side. Remember I40? Don't be sold on the rush for "federal money". It's all taxpayer money in the end taken out of the control of the taxpayer. Would you let a gambler manage your checking account? This could turn into a money pit to beat all money pits without due dillegence.

I vote for an intellegent,prudent and detail rich proceedure.

Re: “Anybody in Raleigh FOR high-speed rail? No, seriously —

Wake up those still sleeping people in Five Points! Anyone who thinks that this railroad will not affect you because it's several blocks away and its too far into the future, think again. Construction on this project is scheduled to start in 2014 and last for a minimum of four years, if they're able to complete it on time. Picture bulldozers, cranes, monster backhoes, jackhammers, dump trucks,freigh rigs, workmen in perpetual motion up and down our streets and in the work zone 8-10 hours a day and perhaps on saturday. our homes our park our streets will be blanketed in filth and the deafening noise will be omnipresent nearly non-stop. It will make the "sewar repair" look like a manicure. This is your investment, your life. You can't make a difference if you don't shout out loud with your presence. This public hearings is for the purpose of giving you at least a toehold into effecting the outcome of this proposal.

CIty Council [7:00 PM - 9:00 PM] Public Hearing On Proposed High Speed Rail Service Location: 222 West Hargett Street, Council Chambers
