Submission Text
I work and have lived in the uintah basin most of my life I’m 51. I have seen the ups and downs of the oil field and the impact it has on the community. Bringing the Railroad to the Uinta Basin would curb this impact it will not eliminate it but help diversify other trades and businesses. I also lived in Salt Lake City for 19 years the ups and downs were not as impactful to the communities. Those that oppose this railway are citizens outside of the Uinta Basin and do not feel the economic impacts this community does in low times. Those individuals just want their vacation home sites preserved while holding back other individuals to please themselves. The Uinta Basin needs the railroad.
