Tonight’s Blaine City Council meeting will feature a presentation by a rail advocate from Seattle who has been studying the possibility of a train stop in Blaine.

Bruce Agnew from the Seattle-based Cascadia Center for Regional Development will present on a possible Blaine passenger rail station, a third Amtrak Cascades round trip, transit and pedestrian access at Peace Arch to a train station, enhanced access to Bellingham airport, and freight rail improvements at the Blaine Swift customs inspection siding. City Council members from White Rock and Surrey, whose city councils have passed resolutions in support of a Blaine train stop, will also be in attendance.

The city council meeting will start at 6 tonight, March 26, in the Blaine City Council chambers. Click here to see my last story on this issue.
