DLP Explores Additional Avenue in CSX Struggle

The Downtown Lakeland Partnership announced this morning another avenue in their struggle over the CSX uptick in trains through Lakeland.

The Surface Transportation Board replaced the century old Interstate Commerce Commission in 1995 and has the Federal responsibility to approve or disapprove railroad transactions of any significance. The Winter Haven project qualified as a rail project of significance the moment CSX involved another railroad, the Evansville Western, no matter whether its 3 acres or 300 acres or 3000 acres. — Julie Townsend, DLP Executive Director

Townsend suggests concerned citizens contact Congressman Adam Putnam, and U.S. Senators Bill Nelson and Mel Martinez.
