The Dumbarton Rail Corridor (DRC) Project, which has been around since before 2000 or so continues to be pursued by advocates who see it as a meaningful transit project. Many others see it as a project looking for a reason. No matter your point of view the project continues to undergo revision with the objective of convincing folks it is cost effective and needed. If you are interested in learning the current thinking on the DRC Alternative Study Report of March 2011 it, along with associated materials is posted at: http://www.nilesunity.com/?section=758
The next meeting of the DRC Citizen’s Advisory Panel is scheduled for Wednesday 13 April at 7:00 pm at the George M Silliman Activity and Family Aquatic Center, 6800 Mowry Ave, Newark. The public is welcome.
