Re: “CSX Concerns

I'd just point out two things.

Your comment that "residents with safety concerns were not convinced" is left entirely unsubstantiated, with no example or quotations. I was at the meeting, and it seemed like there was a great effort to help answer these concerns when they were brought up. I'm certain there may have been individuals who left less than 100% satisfied, but your vague, unsubstantiated line is simply irresponsible.

Also, about this paragraph:

"Homeowners also had privacy concerns, especially about a stretch of the trail that is at a higher grade than the tops of backyard fences. Richie Smith, designer for the first phase the project, said they would probably plant a fence of shrubbery near the trail to alleviate those concerns."

One, your insertion of the word probably is unfair. From what I understood, they will DEFINITELY do something about the privacy, but they were only laying out several PROBABLE OPTIONS.

Two, he didn't talk about "shrubbery": he talked about 7 foot tall evergreen trees that would create a solid green wall to protect sightlines. Your lack of specifics and vague word choice are used to skew the portrayal, and that is, again, irresponsible.
