Miller train station plan off the rails at meeting

A Post Tribune article with the same title as this post shares the plight of the recent meeting on Tuesday night that discussed the plan to close the South Shore Railroad station in Miller.

It sounds like the crowd completely shot down the NICTD spokesman and was very adamant about not closing down the station. The plans call for the station to be used as a bus station and building one big station for all of Gary. The residents fear that doing so would nearly kill the local business in Miller as well as discourage people from moving there.

NICTD will continue collecting public comments on the proposal until July 18. Comments can be mailed to NICTD at 33 E. U.S. 12, Chesterton, IN 46304.

Gateway Partners has established a Web site, www.indianagateway.com, that has more information on the proposal.

NICTD's next board meeting is July 25.
