I'll look out for the minutes once they're released... good idea. I follow City Council but there are some terms I still don't understand, such as "final" motions.I think it's ok, clearly the City wants to avoid a court case and the rails are gone anyway. I suspect the end result will be a that protected corridor is maintained so that , one day, a rail line could be rebuilt IF someone pays the huge cost and if it can, somehow, be reconnected to the main line. I think there was no vote but was not watching and minutes not out until next week. It's kind of hard to be too sorry for those objecting as they never used it when it was there. The only, occasional, user was the City who no longer need it.
Avoiding a court case makes sense but time is ticking and this is an opportunity to give even more space for pedestrians, cyclists, and landscaping. Otherwise, it'll be a useless median that won't benefit anyone.
