Picture: The president of Vermont Rail Systems, David Wulfson, speaks on behalf of the company’s new facility to a group of people at the Shelburne Community School.
The Town of Shelburne has filed a lawsuit against Vermont Railways earlier this year in dispute of a transfer and storage facility in which preparation is already under way. The facility is being prepared in close proximity to the LaPlatte River and Shelburne Village, causing the town to have become wary of nearby wetlands as well as traffic flow. Environmental advocates have harshly objected to the railroad’s developing facility as it obliterates a now standing crucial buffer zone to the river. The company has already cleared 18 acres in preparation for the structure, but it can’t proceed with actual construction until the next round of hearings in late April.
