Submission Text
I have some objections to the train traveling on the proposed route. 1. We have a National Monument in the same area as the rails in the proposed route. This national monument (Browns canyon) is placed at risk with train accidents, and leakage from the shipment. 2. The area has changed since trains we last allowed through this area. This area has an increased population, large amount of travel in the spring, summer, and fall. This impacts the tourism of our area, without leaving potential benefit to having the train. 3. This area has become a quiet area since the train has left, and having the train would bring large amounts of noise along the route. 4. This area does not receive any compensation for these problems, we are not receiving any goods, or services. So for this area having a train will have an negative impact, with the possibility of having a disastrous impact in our community.
