Lone Star Rail District Workshop

On Tuesday, December 13th at 3:00 PM the Georgetown City Council will hold a workshop to examine progress made by the Lone Star Rail District.

The District aims to connect San Antonio to Georgetown, with points in between and points beyond. Passenger rail seems to be on everybody’s wish-list in Georgetown, and it’s an obvious necessity for a sustainable future with lighter energy consumption.

But it’s also in some jeopardy. The District came under a vicious attack from three members of the council during the fierce late-night budget deliberations in the August/September meetings, and five years of work and investment were almost destroyed by the stroke of a pen. So it’s important to show support and learn more about this long-range, hugely successful to-date project.

Please show up to show support and interest, and to get the full story on the Lone Star Rail District on Tuesday. The workshop is open to the public and will be held at Council Chambers, on the northeast corner of the Square at 7th & Main. We will be able to ask the District officers questions after the workshop is over, when the City Council leaves the dais and goes into Executive Session.

Take a look through the presentation below and get your questions ready.

See you there!
