I am sick and tired of legislators saying the South Shore Line will bring jobs and money. I don't see many towns that have it having a lot of money or jobs.
How many permanent jobs will it create? Will local area workers be hired for those jobs?
They aren't talking about what it may do to the area. What about those who live near the tracks that listen to the current trains? Why should they have to put up with noise increase?
What about the home values?
What about traffic on Calumet Avenue and U.S. 30? It's a nightmare now.
What about crime? Will it increase crime? None of these issues have been talked about.
The people should be given all the pros and cons to the South Shore going in. Let the people decide not the politicians.
