Boca Raton City Council should reconsider placing the Brightline station etc, on the corner of 18 Street and Dixie Hwy by the Hillsboro Canal, which i believe they are going to make a park. It eliminates huge traffic problems, provides easy access, plenty of space, better traffic flow, which we all know is going to happen in the proposed location.
Weren’t they going to close down Second Ave from Palmetto Pk Rd heading north to create a city compound? Where is that in all of this? Is it still on the table?

I like the idea of the train coming to Boca, but NOT where THEY want to put it. It will provide jobs, more Uber, more buses, more cyclists. Plus more pick up space for people who are greeting a Brightline rider or dropping off (Which is going to happen in any location). We do not need any more over building in one location. SERIOUS reconsideration needs to take place.
