“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.” -Michelangelo
From the USHSR website: “Our vision is for a 21st century, 17,000 mile national high speed rail system built in 4 phases, for completion by 2030. This new national system will revitalize our economy, reactivate our manufacturing sector, create millions of jobs, end our oil dependency, and cut our carbon footprint by epic proportions. Powered by electricity, this system provides sustainable, affordable and safe mobility for all.”
Jobs, transportation, reduction on oil dependence. Nothing but upside for Redding in this idea. Our community began this latest phase of civilization as a rail town, back in 1872. This is our next logical step. Let’s take it.
