The historic area east of Roeding Park will soon get a gift from the High-Speed Rail Authority – a wall guaranteed to sunder at least part of the neighborhood.
The wall is actually part of an overpass that the Rail Authority must build as the bullet train project makes its way through Fresno. We’ll call it the Belmont Overpass.
The city’s Historic Preservation Commission on Monday discussed the proposed Belmont Overpass for nearly an hour with a bullet train official. The commissioners were not pleased with what they heard.
The commissioners and bullet train officials are headed for another meeting on this issue.
