I went to the SAFE meeting at the All Nations Church last Thursday and here is a synopsis (as much as possible) of what I saw and heard. Almost 1,000 showed up to hear what was happening with the High Speed Rail. David DePinto and Kelly Decker made presentations that had the group standing and cheering for what they had accomplished.
The whole deal is a nightmare for the people directly affected- the State is buying houses where they “think” the train is going through-they don’t give you what your home and property are worth- they give you solely what THEY think the house is worth. If your property is worth considerable more, then you are out of luck. (They don’t take into consideration the amount of land you have, the type of animals you have or the type of crops you raise) ONLY WHAT THE HOUSE IS WORTH, nothing more.
Then, while you wait for your money, which can take up to two years, you pay the state rent for because you are still living in the house – of course, if you have a mortgage, you are still paying that also.

They are probably not going to tunnel through neighborhoods – so if you live nearby, you will have a train going 200 mph beside your neighborhood every 5 minutes – so plan your day accordingly.
They (The State) say that they will tunnel through the Angeles National Forest, but what they don’t mention are all the power stations, service roads (just in case) and rescue tunnels which will need to be built to service the train.
Think of the electric lines- how many fires have we had due to downed power lines? Also, think of the huge swaths of land which will have to be cleared for staging grounds.
The big talk is about the greenhouse gases – the pollution from this project- just the cement alone – will take 70 years to offset the green-house gases created by this project, and of course it will be outdated and useless by then. The state is estimating 11,000 people a day will use the train – REALLY? To go to Nor Cal?
