P.Buford, Attorney, representing the Southern ER. and Mr. James Beard, <br />A~ent for said Railroad come before the Board to explain their opposition to a <br />proposed grade crossing between the subdivisions of Woodmont and GresJTield, <br />citing the fact ths~t the proposed crossing would be an extremely dangerous <br />crossing over which anproximately 1OOO cars per day would be traveling; that <br />such a crossing is not necessary because there are two crossings within a mite <br />to the west and one within a short distance to the east and that such a crossing <br />would be detrimental to the neighborhood because of the traffic and the neces~ty <br />of the train, blowing its whistle approaching the crossing. <br />Mr.J.Alfred Taylor, ~.T~omas M.Robinson and a delegation of approximately <br />25 people appear to further oppos~ the crossing and present a petition signed by <br />approximately 217 residents opposing the crossing. <br />Mr. Jack Kenny, Attorney, for the Consolidated Sales Corporation, states that the <br />history of the Railroad was that service~as decreasing, the number of t~ains were <br />decreasing and that the necessity of housing was increasing. He refutes the <br />idea of using the crossing close to Rt. 1~7 by saying that it is far too dangerous <br />to use, that the new modern crossing w~th good sight distance would be far <br />better. <br />~ir.J.K.Timmons, Planning Engineer, for the subdivisions, states that the County <br />Ordinance requires free access between subdivisions for fire trucks, school <br />buses, etc.and the Robious Railroad crossing is the most dangerous one in the <br />east. <br />Mr. Julian Jacobs, one of the developers, states tLo. t he is continuing to <br />build houses in the Woodr,:ont area, that the grade crossing would be of great <br />benefit to both subdivisions. <br /> <br />A suggestion was made from the Board that the parties consult further and try to <br />reach an agreement. Mr.B~ord states that the Railroad will oppose the <br />crossing and there is ne Oeed to discuss the mat,;er further. <br /> <br />Mr. Nartin states ?~e has visited the site and has changed his mind concerning the <br />issue and moves theft the motion made on February 12, 1964, be rescinded. <br />mt.
