All Aboard Florida is signaling its willingness to build additional stations between West Palm Beach and Orlando, offering to initiate ridership and environmental studies for communities that identify possible locations.

 Russell Roberts, vice president of government affairs for All Aboard Florida, spoke last Saturday during a special meeting of the Stuart City Commission, telling board members the Treasure Coast should consider a site analysis for a stop.

Mark Brechbill, a board member with the group Stuart Main Street, said All Aboard Florida could be devastating to downtown if the city doesn’t get a stop, so he’s open to hearing options for a station. Brechbill owns land east of the railroad tracks in downtown Stuart and plans to build a mixed-use development there.
