Group Fears Some People Being Shut Out Of Railroad Relocation Project


A coalition of non-profit groups is concerned that not enough is being done to ensure that the benefits… and burdens… of railroad relocation are being spread out evenly around the community. 

 

The Faith Coalition for the Common Good entered into a “Community Benefits Agreement” four years ago that was intended to ensure that minorities and east-side residents would have a chance at jobs created by the railroad project.  Money was supposed to be set aside for job training… and steps were to be taken to guarantee that residents near the 10th Street tracks would receive help if they were forced to move. 

 

But the Coalition says there are few signs that any of those things are in the works… and they want to keep up pressure on the city, county and state to follow through on those commitments.
