YORK- Thursday night at the York City Council meeting a resolution declaring a quiet zone in York at the four at-grade crossings was signed. This makes it official on the city’s end that all modifications are in order to demand no more train horns. The resolution states: “It is hereby resolved that the City of York shall issue a notice of a Quite Zone Establishment to authorize the city officials to provide formal notice that a quiet zone is being established for the following public at-grade crossings: 25th Street, Delaware Avenue, 19th Street, and North Division Avenue.”
York City Administrator Joe Frei told the city council that hopefully, train horns will no longer happen in this area at the end of this month. He also said they will notify the railroad and the state and they will have 21 days to comment, and ask for changes.
This has been a lengthy process, over a course of 11 years and the approximate cost during the timeline is $1,107,502. All council members said yes to the final sign off.
