Light Rail/Diesel/Oasis Line – The city is talking about running a temporary line down the Oasis line to a potential terminal at/near Montgomery Inn Boathouse. Lewis and Lauren Seiler, long-time residents next to Maribelle’s Tavern @ 2056 Riverside Drive, voiced his concerns about the negative impact he feels the rail system may have on the East End. See the blog for contact numbers for your input. The Ohio Rail Development Commission, along with ODOT and another Federal Rail group, is working on a report due out in August, to look at the Cleveland-Columbus-Cincinnati spur of a regional network of rail lines. Joe suggested appointing a committee to find as much information out as possible between now and July, then present to the council at the next meeting in July. Three volunteers, Lewis and Lauren Seiler, and Ruth Coon will be the new committee on the mission of fact-finding on the proposed rail line, and will be reporting to us next month.
