Dear Uinta Basin Railway Board Members, I am the owner of 10 acres of recreation property in Argyle Canyon Estates, lot 298. As you are probably aware, this private land is adjacent to one of your proposed routes for the Uinta Basin Railroad project, Indian Canyon. My deceased parents bought the property in 1975 because they could see it was truly a place to recreate. Not much has changed in all that time, and for 45 years, our family has enjoyed all that nature has to offer. Construction of a railroad through nearby Indian Canyon would disrupt the tranquil nature of this land through both noise and environmental pollution. Therefore, I respectfully request that the board select one of the other two alternative routes being considered, either of which would result in a reduced impact on privately owned lands of not only this generation but those yet to come. Sincerely, Lawrence E Wagstaff
