From page A4 | July 20, 2014 |

The plan to ship volatile crude oil by rail through downtown Davis is the subject of two free workshops coming up in Davis, from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, July 22, and from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, July 27. Both events will take place in the Blanchard Room at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St.

The workshops are open to local residents who are interested in finding out the latest developments and actions that can be taken concerning Valero refinery’s expansion proposal. The ongoing discussion will include an update on the project’s draft environmental impact report and the preparation of a response from residents of Davis and other up-rail communities.

“Join us and get the current information or offer your expertise,” a news release said.

    Since I’m not 100% against the oil trains, I don’t think I’d be very welcome at their workshops. However, I’ll offer my two cents on how to increase safety with the oil trains. *Request a special reduced speed through Davis for oil train shipments *Request oil trains travel at low population, non-working hours such as between 12am-6am *Request as few amount of tanker cars possible with each train *Request new and safer tanker cars are used ASAP I think coming to some middle ground would be more productive than just fighting the arrival of the trains.
