Leon County Says “No” To High Speed Rail

Leon County Commissioners met Monday, November 10th and voted unanimously to approve a Resolution or Letter protesting the proposed High Speed Rail from Houston to Dallas that may pass through Leon County. Leon County is the first county to formally oppose the High Speed Rail.

Commissioners met in their regular called meeting. Leon County Judge Byron Ryder presided. Ryder said the High Speed Rail is not in the best interest of Leon County.

As of now, there are three proposed paths for the Railway and one of those would pass through the west side of Leon County and effect property owners in Precincts 3 and 4.

Precinct 3 Commissioner Dean Stanford said, “I have heard from many of the people in my area, and have not heard anything positive about this coming through our county.”

There are still more scoping meetings to come as Rail Way promoters hold town talks in areas that may be effected by the Rail. One such meeting will likely be held in Centerville on December 1st in the old upstairs courtroom. Judge Ryder encouraged citizens with concerns and questions to attend this meeting.
