Fw: Norfolk Southern Corporation Ethanol Transloading Facility in Alexandria

Hi Tim,

Since Bernie Caton is out of town for a week I wanted to give you and Jim a heads up about a memo (attached) that we have sent out to City Council today and will be sharing with the community.   It relates to an ethanol transloading facility that Norfolk Southern has opened on their property in the west end.

The City Attorney has told us that the federal  Surface Transportation Board recently issued a decision that preempts local zoning laws that would regulate or prohibit such railroad transloading operations.   With this in mind, I expect that you might be hearing from West End residents about the federal preemption and why the City is not permitted to regulate such facilities.

If you have any questions, please give me a call at xxx-xxx-xxxx.

Michele Evans
Deputy City Manager
