“A new coalition of northern Palm Beach County and Treasure Coast communities has formed a limited liability company CARE FL (Citizens Against Rail Expansion in FL) to fight All Aboard Florida, the proposed express passenger rail service from Miami to Orlando.

“‘We do have significant resources talentwise and otherwise to take our concerns over public safety, quality of life and the impact on our home values to the next level,’ said Bill Ward, CEO of Mariner Sands Country Club in Stuart, and a member of the CARE’s steering committee.

“The coalition sent a letter (see below) to Gov. Rick Scott saying it has many questions about financing of the project, including whether community taxpayer dollars will be needed to supplement safety upgrades and maintenance at crossings.”
