A new High Speed Rail program planned to connect certain part of the country and include building a new route from Richmond,VA to Raleigh. Ultimately, Richmond will connect with DC and the Northeast, and Raleigh will connect with Charlotte and several southern states including Florida.
In our area - from Wake Forest Road to Boylan Bridge- NCDOT has designed 3 alternatives of where to locate the new high speed rail tracks.
Options "NC1 and NC2", essentially the same, would be on the the East side of Capital Boulevard along the current CSX route.
Option "NC3" places the new tracks alongside the Norfolk Southern rail corridor- from Wake Forest to Peace Street- on land claimed from the historic Five Points neighborhood.
We the undersigned, OPPOSE OPTION NC3 and ask City and State officials to seek another alternative that is less damaging to the Five Points neighborhood and more beneficial to the City as a whole.
By submitting this petition, I certify that the information below is correct.

Comments: My family and I are considering buying a home in Five Points and will look elsewhere if it back up to the high speed rail.

Comments: 5points is know around the world. It's a proven piece of American history. Not to mention it's high standing in the Urban Art world. In the east coast 5points reigns over all. To find another art project of that size would take you to across the country to California. I live in Hampton roade and the light rail can be useful to us. Don't make it something we the people use with regret when it can be so much more. Vote no to NC3. It shouldn't even be a choose for them to destroy our history.
