Tired of hearing train horns while shopping and eating in Historic Downtown?
City Commissioners are working to establish quiet zones in downtown. The regulations would ban trains from blasting their horns in the defined downtown area.
At a City Commission meeting Monday, May 9, commissioners approved to match a $165,000 of grant from the Florida Department of Transportation for railroad infrastructure improvements the quiet zones would require. The money will be taken out of the Community Redevelopment Agency fund.
