David Stall

Region: Blackland Prairie

Topics: Roads, Transportation, Tolls, Government

 
Mr. Stall is a city manager and citizen advocate who has worked with his wife, Linda Stall, and other volunteers to research and share information about the Trans Texas Corridor.  The Corridor is an ambitious plan to build a 1200-foot wide, 4000-mile, 584,000-acre set of tollways, railroad tracks, and utility transmission lines which would criss-cross the state.  The Stalls' organization, CorridorWatch.org, has identified a number of concerns about the Corridor, including fragmentation of habitat, takings of historic family homesteads, breakup of agricultural operations, limits to emergency service access, terrorist risk from combined utilities, undercutting of local sales tax revenues, liability for large costs ($184 billion), loss of public revenues from the state transportation system, and limited benefits from alleviated traffic congestion.
