I wish Norfolk Southern would hurry up and get started on their transport center. Almost everyone has already sold out and this county needs the jobs as well as all of the other benefits this will bring. People can only stop progress for so long.

You are right.
It's time to get off the pot and move along on this project.
This county needs a boost. Houses are empty, businesses are having a difficult time surviving, children are not at the level they should be to compete in this world.
The area is beautiful, lets use it to its potential.

Norfolk Southern highlights economic development in new television ad

NORFOLK, VA.– Norfolk Southern today launches a new television commercial that showcases the railroad’s role as a creator of economic possibilities – a powerful force for growth among the industries and communities served by the line.

“City of Possibilities” begins airing today in 30- and 60-second versions on CNN, Fox News, and other channels. It will run during the Republican and Democratic national conventions and through the presidential election in November, appearing as well in event sponsorships at the convention sites in Tampa Bay and Charlotte, and in various digital venues.

The spot is a whimsical portrayal of a boy and his dog, and the steady growth of a railroad-served community that springs up while they sleep.

In the last decade, NS has participated in the location and expansion of more than 1,000 factories, distribution facilities, and other businesses along its lines, representing an investment by NS customers of $30 billion and some 46,000 jobs.

“Norfolk Southern is a dependable partner for states and local economic development authorities on projects involving site selection and development of infrastructure to connect customers to our rail system,” said Donald W. Seale, NS executive vice president and chief marketing officer.“It’s not a stretch to say that, where the railroad goes, good things follow. We’re doing our part to keep the American economy strong, and we’re ready to do much more. That’s an incredibly positive message for the country and one that will be well received during the election season.”

There is areason they call it getting RAILROADED. boy do they have all you fooled.

They plan on buying 13 acres of the Manley property. You can see the area they want at furrow auction online.
It is going to be a while before they get this ball rolling. You think it is going to be the savior of this area? Boy they have you guys fooled. Your still going to be at your sorry old jobs with your GED educations. The only dream anyone will be living is Norfolk Southern bringing in all that revenue. They don't care about Jefferson County or the people here. it will be 10 to 15 years down the road AFTER it is built before we start to see the tax benefits. Wake up!

You have your facts wrong on the tax issue. For the first five years the property is taxed at the same rate (farm) it has today. After the five years they pay based on industrial use. I believe most us are looking forward to jobs, not taxes. Only an government employee would think of tax revenue over jobs.

What did you expect immediate gratification ? We can spend 65 million on schools that are going to bring in major business's somehow and save the county but the railroad can't get a break ?
Screw you, you ignorant moron. Perhaps the railroad will end up helping to save us from the insanity the doe has reaped on us. In 5 years mabe the railroads taxes will help pay the interest on the interest. Because if we don't get rid of fools like you and the dark side and the doe, we are screwed forever. We need to elect some people that can just say NO !

You copied the TOTAl Manley bancruptcy sale. They are selling this farm in multiple tracts. One on Jefferson City, one large tract off Indian Cave Road and several smaller tracts off 11E and north of the railroad.
If you go back and look at the prpoerty for sale you will see the 13 acre wedge NS wants. This is right where they plan on putting in some of the ext rails for the intermodal. NS isn't going to buy the entire sale.

Why would they buy the other land? It is not even connected to the site where they want to put the intermodal. The 13 acres they want is right smack in the middle of where the intermodal is going to be. The Manley property is in multiple tracts. They are selling 600+ acres total, but the 13 acres is the only tract NS is interested in due to its location in the proposed site.
