We, the undersigned residents of the City of Sacramento, do hereby express our disapproval of any State Parks, Regional Transit, or City of Sacramento plans to operate or move trains through the Land Park and South Land Park communities within the City of Sacramento, as outlined in the draft general plan for excursion trains running from the Old Sacramento State Historic Park to Hood. We further request that State Parkscancel all plans and feasibility studies for "excursion train" operations that involve operating on the defunct railroad right-of-way between the Zoo and the Pocket/Meadowview area.We ask that State Parks removes the concept from the OSSHP general plan. We oppose train operations in our neighborhoods for the following 10 reasons: (1) introduction of noise and air pollution; (2) threats to the safety of small children around railroad tracks; (3) concerns over privacy; (4) increased traffic congestion; (5) disruption of community character and aesthetics; (6) lack of any historical relevance for operation of such a train; (7) costs associated with laying tracks, crossing arms, etc; (8) deforestation and disruption of the old railroadright-of-way, which has largely become a greenbelt; (9) threat to the health of nearby school children attending numerous city and private schools; and (10) incompatibility with Sacramento Executive Airport operations and safety guidelines.
