.Letter to the Editor: Bank It

Santa Cruz does not currently have the money to study train options, let alone build one! Railbanking gives us the opportunity to pave an interim trail in two years, and build a train in the future if/when the money becomes available.

This is the compromise that everyone can agree on, and it will be coming to a countywide vote next year with the Yes-Greenway Ballot Initiative!

Friends of the Rail Trail sought to block this vote, and do nothing with the corridor for the foreseeable future, out of genuine concern that an interim trail would be so massively popular that no one would ever go for their train.

They might be right!
