At tomorrow’s worksession, the City Council will discuss a CSX proposal to build a patch across Davis Field at the end of Kennesaw Street.
CSX is saying they want to “reestablish” the access path, which they had years ago through the field.
CSX wants to build this access path in the form of a deeded right from the City of College Park.
CSX is proposing to make improvements to the entrance by constructing a dual pivoting gate with both the City and CSX’s locks and gravel or paving the path to our corridor if the City requires. CSX will also pay for all closing costs for the City to convey the property right.
On average our crews would use this access 2-3 times per month. By federal government mandate, they are required to test our switches and signals on a monthly basis. CSX signal department would use this access path to reach their switch just north of this location for the monthly testing. Their maintenance of way department would use this access path rarely for switch maintenance.
Please let me know what you think about the proposed access path.

Thank you Mr Kabir for bringing this proposal to out attention. I would like to let you know that I strongly oppose this proposal and do not want to see the construction of pathway through the Davis Field Park. Thanks again.
