Chowchilla votes to block high speed rail construction

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

City leaders in Chowchilla have taken action to block high speed rail construction unless changes are made to the rail line plan.

The Chowchilla City Council voted for an ordinance calling for a 45-day moratorium on construction of any portion of the high speed rail system within the city limits. Residents have voiced safety concerns and other issues with the line.

The city wants the rail authority to find a solution before construction begins.

City leaders will consider an even longer moratorium when they meet again early next month.
