NCICG to host public events on rail station planning


Ottawa — North Central Council of Governments in coordination with the communities of LaSalle, Morris, North Utica, Ottawa, and Peru, have scheduled four events to present information to the public on potential station locations for the proposed new passenger rail service between Peoria and Chicago, Illinois.

Events will be held in an open house format, which means you can attend at any time. The same materials will be available at all events so you can attend whichever is the most convenient for you. Exhibits will be on display and consultant team members will be available to answer questions. All materials will also be made available on the NCICG website following completion of the events.
