At first I thought it would be a good thing, but after more consideration I think it will ruin this county. I moved here 7 yrs. ago from Chicago to raise my kids in a safer place, over the last 3yrs i have seen huge changes for the worse in Boone County, bringing a train through here is just going to attract more problems for the bigger cities.

I think this will attract gangs and will be a drug rail.

Unless the train has an actual stop in Belvidere (and seriously, why would it? Unless there is a silenty majority wishing to travel to Dubuque Iowa...) you shouldn't have a single thing to be concerened about.
