The proposed passenger rail running from San Antonio to Georgetown line was pushed to lay the work for the city’s financial contribution. Unfortunately, it was halted shortly before it was even funded.
This project was still a valuable vote of confidence for the passenger rail line. The expressed project has started as Austin City speeds to draw its vision for the said project where it could connect a regional transportation network.
After a 45 minute heated discussion, it was agreed to push through with the transportation infrastructure zone around several proposed points of rail station. It was also agreed that part of the taxes from properties that are in excess of the base valuation of January 1st of 2013 will be contributed to the rail line plan.
