Energy Park Rail Spur Utilization Meeting
The City of Gillette in conjunction with the Campbell County Economic Development Corporation will hold a public input meeting on Tuesday, October 22nd at 6:30 p.m. at the George Amos building on 412 S. Gillette Avenue to accept public comment on improving rail utilization within Energy Park.
The public comments will be included in a study that is focused on site assessment of vacant parcels along the rail spur and ways to improve rail utilization of existing businesses. In addition, the City and CCEDC are working with BNSF to garner their input on improving rail siding opportunities. The City and CCEDC invite all who are interested to please stop by the open house to voice your issues, ideas, comments and suggestions for improving rail use within Energy Park. Local businesses within Energy Park are especially encouraged to attend.
KLJ will be conducting a public open house; no formal presentation will be given. However, a brief overview of the project will commence at 6:30 PM with an open house to follow. Light refreshments will be provided.
Subject to public comment, the City will move forward with conceptual rail expansion layouts and associated costs for improving rail utilization. A second public meeting will be held in January to deliver draft recommendations for comment. In addition, a City Council workshop will be conducted in December to prioritize improvements.
