Rail authority moves for more public comment on plan – Times-Standard Online.

EUREKA — The North Coast Railroad Authority on Wednesday opted to expand public review of a draft environmental document on the potential effects of opening a 142-mile stretch of rail line between Lombard and Willits.

The draft Environmental Impact Report is a bit slow out the gate, and won’t be on the authority Web site until today, four days into a 45-day public comment period. Only one meeting in Petaluma had been set to hear from the public.

In the end, the board decided to hold a second meeting at a time to be announced in Willits, and to extend the public comment period for the environmental report to May 1.

What a crock! NCRA moved for more public hearings after and only because the public hammered them! Their original plan was to hold as few public meetings as possible.
