BLAINE - The public is invited to a discussion on the state's long-term rail plan on Thursday, May 30.
The three-hour meeting will focus on Amtrak service and international coordination of rail systems. Coal trains are a piece of the puzzle that must be accounted for in the plan, but Thursday's meeting is not a venue to debate the environmental impacts of coal, Blaine Public Works Director Ravyn Whitewolf said.
The meeting, which includes small-group work sessions for attendees, starts at 9 a.m. and takes place at Blaine City Hall, 435 Martin St.
The state Department of Transportation intends to release the plan by the end of the year.
