Opponents to the All Aboard Florida express passenger rail project may have trouble making it to the April 20 public comment meeting in Tallahassee, but they can submit their thoughts by mail.


The Florida Development Finance Corp. is taking written comments submitted in advance of the meeting to Florida Development Finance Corp., c/o Executive Director Bill Spivey, 800 N. Magnolia Ave., Suite 1100, Orlando, FL 32803.


No vote is expected at the April 20 meeting. All Aboard Florida is seeking $1.75 billion in tax exempt private activity bonds to pay for the completion of its Miami to Orlando passenger train.


The company plans to run 32 trains per day on the Florida East Coast Railway tracks.


The April 20 meeting will take place at 9 a.m. at the Residence Inn, 600 W. Gaines St. Tallahassee, FL 3230
