One Response to Tune in to a Special Cotton Belt Facebook Live

  1. Bought and moved into Willow Greene Condominiums 25 years ago to get away from noise and heavy traffic. Now on a fixed income and unable to move, I’m kept awake at night by semi’s and hot-rodding motorcycles, and airplane flight paths that since the Wright Amendment ended, now are almost unceasing from early to late. Plus flight after flight from Addison Airport.

    Now you want to add to our lack of peace and lower our property values by running a commuter train immediately south of us. When I bought here, I was told that, when used, there would be a maximum of one freight train per day, and it would be at night.

    Still recovering from heart surgery, I probably can’t be at your meeting. Please count this email as a Please, please, NO.
