Ogden City Council Continues With Trails and Quiet Zones

Posted on 03 July 2013 by KWBG

OGDEN, Iowa—The Ogden City Council has decided to continue collecting information about two possible projects that have been on the horizon for about two years.  One is a recreational trail program.  The other is a possible quiet zone program, which would be done to eliminate train whistles through town.  This week, the Council did approve proceeding, essentially having City Administrator Donovan Olson collect information about possible funds needed to proceed.  In fact, there are only rough estimates of possible costs at the present time and Olson says they are from more than a year ago.  The quiet zone project will also face some logistical difficulties because of business locations and the need to access some of the property that would be affected by medians or other restrictive lane dividers.  Olson told Council members that additional engineering will eventually be needed, but the Council would know well in advance before that happens.
