along with the Greater Merced High-Speed Rail Committee to locate
the California high-speed rail maintenance facility at the former
Castle Air Force base. The California High-Speed Rail Authority
has estimated that the construction and operation needs of a high-speed
train heavy maintenance facility (“HMF”) will require
1,500 employees. These jobs are planned to be full time positions.
Locating the HMF at Castle can serve as
an anchor for other maintenance ancillary businesses and provide
economic spin-off during construction and during the ongoing operation
of the project circulating through the local economy and stimulating
additional job creation, income and tax benefits for the region.
The California High-Speed Rail Authority
will select a community for a HMF based on several elements and
criteria, one being the community’s willingness to steward
the project. We are committed to changing our business and economic
community for the better. We encourage you to show your support
of locating the HMF at Castle in the Merced region.
