Talking points to consider when composing your letter of support:

  • The rail corridor is infrastructure that cannot be recreated if it is lost; if it goes, no railroad will ever return.
  • Keeping the corridor intact means it’s available for a variety of utility installations.
  • A non-motorized trail is another attractive feature to draw tourism to the county.
  • A non-motorized trail is quiet, safe, and far less costly to maintain, and is ultimately more attractive to a broader spectrum of users. From a child pedaling to school, to a retired couple on horseback, the list of potential non-motorized trail users is long and diverse and without question, far more suited to any trail in such close proximity to homes.
