Mr. Joshua Wayland PhD
I am writing to you to show support for the Railway between Duchesne and [illegible] Park. I've lived in Roosevelt and every county for over fifty years. I've worked in the oilfields - [illegible], etc. I've seen multiple changes in these areas of the state over the years. I think that if people in the Basin will use an open mind, that they'd see the benefits that could come from the railway, in moving petroleum products, farm goods, cattle, and numerous products to and from the area. It'd create much needed jobs, services, and income to the area. I've also seen the changes that have come to the area down Indian Canyon. There are several new houses, fields cleared and farms or ranches that have started down the canyon. I've seen what happens when new development comes to the area. Farms, etc. being split in half, to make way for progress to be made for the economy, and to improve the area.
Some people don't like to see progress. Many environmentalists will fight anything that they don't think will benefit them. But in all reality, in the end, they'll use all the products that come from building this railway. I think that in the end everyone involved in this project will reap the benefits from the building of the railway. Thanks for letting me comment on this subject.
