Third Ward and Transit

This Sunday's Observer reported on the association's opposition to the CATS Vehicle Maintenance Facility planned next to the railroad tracks just south of West Fourth Street.
The concerns of the neighborhood were reflected accurately, with one exception. The neighborhood does not oppose anything associated with Gateway Station because the line is "not completely sure to exist." We actively support public transit, especially light rail and the streetcar, regardless of funding timelines. Though this is a minor issue, I have contacted the author to clarify; I also wanted to be sure residents were correctly informed.
