    The Transit Coalition would support taking a fresh look at any proposals for a
Metrolink Station in the Highgrove area. We would expect some level of current
and updated professional evaluation determining the need of investment of such
a station and the proposed ridership potential. We note that stations can cost
multiple of millions of dollars and we would prefer to see an analysis to determine
the potential utility of such a station and would base our support on such a report.
