Landowners Opposed to Union Pacific’s New RailyardFeatured Stories, News Friday, July 20th, 2012
Not everyone is happy about Union Pacific Railroad’s plans to build a $200 million dollar railyard on 1,000 acres between Mumford and Hearne.
Tricia Scamardo says their farming operation will be across FM 50 from the complex.
Scamardo says the railyard will mean the loss of revenue and jobs generated by agriculture.
She also says there will be an increase in traffic and noise near the Mumford schools.
Scamardo says property owners met recently to discuss their concerns and she says they want the railroad to meet with the group.
