Raytown now a lot closer to having KATY Trail State Park

Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders announced today that a deal has been cut with Union Pacific for the right to purchase sections of abandoned Union Pacific railroad corridors.  The exclusive right to purchase was given at no cost, but the actual purchase would cost $59 million.  This price is about 1/2 the previous asking price of one section of abandon track.

Jackson County has at least two proposed uses for the property,  public transportation lines and hiking & biking trails.  The biggest section of the land in question is the old Rock Island line that runs through Raytown.  The hiking and biking goal is to have a continuous KATY Trail from St. Louis to Independence. That trail would run through Raytown. 

Given the price and the likelihood of outside funds and financing, the probability that this purchase will happen is high. If the purchase happens, then the creation of the hiking and biking trail is also high.   The planned public transportation system is now more likely.

Mayor Bower sounds a little different in this video due to heavy audio scrubbing to reduce wind noise.  Sorry Mayor Bower I thought my wind screen was up to the task.  

Raytown Mayor Dave Bower and County Legislator Theresa Garza Ruiz (who grew up in Raytown) comment on the announcement.

Video of the event, graphics of the areas involved  are being processed and will be published this week.
