When we found out that Railroad Park was for sale and it wasn’t in the city budget to buy it, we felt we had to secure it for the future. That space needs to be preserved and it would be a shame if it was turned into some sort of commercial venture. This ‘green space’ with the wonderful shade trees is a great social center in the downtown area.
With those factors in mind, the board voted unanimously to execute a Letter of Understanding with Union Pacific Railroad to purchase Railroad Park. We have 60 days to conduct our due diligence. This includes environmental, title, survey, etc.
