Nearly 200 citizens attended a standing-room-only Five Points Community Meeting on Monday, Aug. 16th to learn more about the High Speed Rail and the specifically option “NC3” which impact Five Points.     

Thanks to City Councilors Mary-Ann Baldwin, John Odom and Russ Stephenson; City Planners Ken Bowers and Eric Lamb, and Will Allen, Maha Chambliss and Adam Terando from the Passenger Rail Task Force. Also to Durwood Laughinghouse and John Edwards from Norfolk Southern whose rail yard would also be negatively impacted by option NC3.     

We had a substantial turnout from the press and appreciate their interest in this important issue.    

See the Learn More section for information distributed at the meeting.    

We need your help!  Volunteers are needed to help drive this important effort! Please contact us to volunteer in any way you can:     

 Stay tuned for more information!
