CalTrain High-Speed Rail Program discussion w/Local Policy Maker Group

To all stakeholders,

Thank you for your past participation in the planning and environmental clearance process for the San Francisco to San Jose Project Section of the California High-Speed Rail program. Going forward, we will be working with our partners at Caltrain to not only keep you informed about the project, but to make sure you are also included in the process.

Beginning this month, the California High-Speed Rail Authority will alternate hosting the Local Policy Maker Group (LPMG) with Caltrain on a monthly basis. The first LPMG meeting devoted to High-Speed Rail will be held this Thursday and we encourage public participation. Please see the meeting details below:

READ -> The High-Speed Rail Program Overview

As CalTain continues to make progress in making the High-Speed rail a reality, San Mateo residents are encouraged to participate in the Monthly meetings which will help provide input to the Local Policy Makers.  Neighbors should be aware of ALL the longer term impacts the decisions of today:

Impacts include but not limited to:

  • Traffic Flows and Patterns – by creating roadway underpasses on 25th, 28th and 31st
  • Pedestrian Access Impacted by Grade Crossing Treatments such as Fences and Quad Gates
  • New Station Elements
  • Safety Improvements
  • Track Adjustments
  • Passing Track(s)

The vision will be set with or without community input – given the potential impacts both good and bad this is a topic I would encourage your input and participation.  Please see the first of CalTrains First Monthly Meeting and sign up on the CalTrain site for further information and updates
