Ward 5 Councilman Ricki Y. Barlow has been reappointed to the California-Nevada Super Speed Ground Transportation Commission by Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval.
The commission is working on plans to develop a 269-mile super speed, magnetic levitation “Maglev” train system connecting Southern Nevada and Southern California along the heavily congested Interstate 15 corridor.
“I look forward to serving the State of Nevada and working to improve transportation to and from Las Vegas for our visitors and residents,” Councilman Barlow said. “This project will have a major economic impact on Southern Nevada and I appreciate Governor Sandoval choosing me for this task.”
Councilman Barlow was previously appointed to the commission by former Nevada Governor Jim Gibbons. His reappointment means that his new term will conclude on Dec. 31, 2016.
