Neighborhood coal train meeting tonight
Got questions about coal trains? Want to do something about it?
Neighbors will be hosting a meeting about coal trains at Sunset Hill Community Club (3003 NW 66th Street) tonight, from 7 p.m.-9 p.m. It will go over information about the proposed coal export terminal at Cherry Point (just south of Bellingham), how coal train traffic will affect the Ballard area, and steps you can take to voice your opinion.
From the press release:
"We already have three or four coal trains coming through but that could grow to 18 additional coal trains per day – coming along our RR Tracks here in Ballard, along Golden Gardens. Many Ballard Businesses and home owners are against seeing dirty coal shipped through our area, but we need to be heard.
As with all issues, the more you know the better you are able to make informed decisions about what is right for you and your family. So please join us for this informative meeting."
