[ARCHIVED] DC2RVA Public Input

Now is the time for public input on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) as part of the DC2RVA Rail Project.  The Town has tried to make providing input as easy as possible by creating the website www.savedowntownashland.org.  It is important for those who oppose a third rail on the surface or in a trench through Ashland to comment early and often.  Your comments and input on the project are crucial to saving our Town.  Your voice matters!  

There will also be a public hearing, organized by the Department of Rail and Public Transportation, on October 11, 2017 at 6 p.m. in Patrick Henry High School.  Please come share why you believe the State should oppose a third rail through Town.  

If you have any questions about the project, the Town's position on the various alternatives, or how to help please don't hesitate to reach out to Town Manager Joshua Farrar at (804) 798-9219 or Jfarrar@ashlandva.gov.
