The Future

Although the problems on Train Avenue persist and has been mostly unchanged since its birth 120 years ago, there has been several attempts to change the culture of being a go-to place for illegal dumping and other acts of violence towards people, animals and the environment.

From the Train Avenue Greenway Plan concept – which would have turned the road into a recreational path for bikers, runners and walkers, connecting to the trail system; to the Red Line Greenway Plan – an all-purpose rails-to-trails vision linking westside neighborhoods together (completed in May 2021), which butts up against Train Avenue. Bottom line – Train Avenue and its surrounding areas are worthy of re-investment.
