A consulting firm hired by the city of Gilroy to gather community input on two proposed locations for a high-speed rail station will update the Gilroy City Council on its findings during a public meeting 6 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall.

The firm – Berkeley-based Design, Community and Environment – will discuss issues brought up by residents during recent community workshops as well as preliminary concepts for the future of areas near potential station sites in Downtown Gilroy and east of U.S. 101.

The workshops, known as the Gilroy High-Speed Train Station Visioning Project, was paid for with $50,000 from the Gilroy and a $150,000 grant from the Valley Transportation Authority.

If completed, California’s high-speed rail project would span 800 miles from Sacramento to San Diego and carry a price tag of roughly $45 billion.
