A regional planning commission in the Brazos Valley has passed a resolution opposing the proposed high-speed railway between Dallas and Houston.
The Brazos Valley Council of Governments once backed the proposed high-speed rail, plans for which included a stop in the area.
A resolution opposing the high-speed rail “passed overwhelmingly” Wednesday, though, after an hour-long discussion involving the BVCOG and Texas Central Partners, the company developing the high-speed rail.
The BVCOG called Wednesday’s decision “a solid blow to [Texas Central’s] claim of strong support in the Brazos Valley because of its purported station to service the area,” according to a media release.
In March 2014, the BVCOG voted in favor of the high-speed rail “in concept.”
