Having led our respective communities’ successful ballot initiatives that enabled the Light Rail projects in 2011 and 2012, and having worked with various stakeholders throughout its development, we are disappointed that the state legislature is changing the rules for fair partnership again. The Durham-Orange Light Rail Project is important for regional job growth and economic development, and regional business leaders will continue to work with our local, regional, state, and federal partners to advance Durham-Orange transit and other forward-thinking transportation initiatives.
