PALMDALE – The Democratic Club of the High Desert (DCHD) invites Antelope Valley residents to a presentation next week by the California High-Speed Rail Authority.
This presentation will detail the current status of the high-speed rail project and how it will affect the Antelope Valley with the prospect of a stop in Palmdale. A short question and answer session will follow the presentation. All Antelope Valley residents are welcome to attend, and light refreshments will be provided, according to organizers.
“We believe providing the public information on important issues is a critical part of community service,” stated DCHD President Johnathon Ervin. “With a project as ambitious as the high-speed rail, the public deserves to know what we stand to benefit and how much it will cost,”
The high-speed rail presentation will take place at the club’s monthly meeting, which starts at 7 p.m., Wednesday, July 23, at the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, Local 725, located at 39047 10th Street East in Palmale.
Robert Vanderstok will deliver the presentation.
The California High-Speed Rail Authority is responsible for planning, designing, building and operation of the first high-speed rail system in the nation. The planned line would connect Los Angeles with San Francisco in under three hours at speeds capable of over 200 miles per hour and allow for future extensions to San Diego and Sacramento.
