We can't get job growth without some development

Letter to the editor

November 22, 2011

I was recently one of the many citizens to attend the public workshop about the Baltimore Washington Intermodal Facility. I was impressed by the sheer volume of information presented. I am looking forward to additional information as plans progress, and encourage my fellow community members to be a part of this process as it continues.

We need to let the process work and recognize the benefits of this facility to Maryland, wherever it is sited. We also have to remember that in order to grow the current job offerings in our community we need to objectively evaluate all opportunities presented. We cannot advocate and demand growth for our state and country but then stymie growth opportunities.

While I believe that not all sites are appropriate for development, I do believe that after viewing the information presented there are viable options for us all to grow economically, environmentally and as a community.
