Cedar Yards Reactivation

NCDOT has acknowledged that it is considering the reactivation of the rail line leading from Wesley Heights into Third Ward at the Cedar Yards. The limited details available indicate that space would be leased for the storage of several passenger cars, which may be used for parties or tailgating in association with stadium events.
I have notified CMPD of the possible reactivation (established residents will remember the presence of several train cars a few years ago, which were at the time a security concern). Additional information will be shared as it is received, as will the date of a public meeting being scheduled for sometime in March. Contact me with questions or comments.
