Nurturing train stations

Re: Tampa Tribune Opinion: Nurturing train stations

The commissioners aren’t going to be sending their “plan” to anyone for approval as they don’t have a plan other than to first get voter approval for a multi-billion dollar pot of money that they can then spend based on what their consultants tell them. They have yet to draw one firm line on a map showing the actual rail route, let alone station locations. Everything is in a “cloud”. 

This opinion piece is correct however in that the true benefits will go to property owners near stations. As we are in the middle of the Silly Season, the stations will likely go to the highest political campaign contributors.
