HSR Project Briefing in Tampa July 19

The Florida Department of Transportation through its Florida Rail Enterprise announced today it will host a regional high speed rail briefing for the Florida Congressional delegation and other elected officials within the project corridor on July 19 at the Tampa Convention Center. All members of the Florida Congressional delegation have been invited to attend.

The regional high speed rail briefing is a follow-up to the first successful event held in Lakeland in February 2009. Like the prior event, this event is being coordinated with the Central Florida Partnership, Connect Us and Tampa Bay Partnership. The event will be held from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at the Tampa Convention Center. Members of the public are invited to attend, but no formal comment period is anticipated. There will be opportunities to discuss the project with department staff before or after the event, and comment forms will be available as well.

    Well attended meeting of players and politicians. Shelly Lauten of claimed in this presentation that the high speed rail project will conserve 1 million acres of environmental lands and cause 44% less land to be consumed. How does a train running down the middle of I-4 do all that? The answer is by "compact development" aka "smart growth", aka "New Urbanism", aka "Traditional Neighborhood Design", aka "Transit Oriented Development", aka "Livable Communities", aka "Sustainable Development". These are all names meaning the same thing: they are anti-suburban, high-density dwelling design concepts that are part of the UN's Agenda 21 and will make single family home ownership for our posterity unattainable. Cost is not the only factor with high speed rail. Statists are using these central planning schemes to combat "man-made climate change" and is a land grab to convert private lands to federal control.
