Questions about potential quiet zones

Editor, the Advocate:
How much taxpayer money will be required for the quiet train zone between Stockbauer Drive and North Street? Several numbers were tossed around in the Advocate article, but I did not see where anyone defined the actual cost. Will this set a precedent where additional quiet zones will have to be provided for other sections of railroad track? Development Engineer Johnston is quoted as saying, "the city was here before the trains." It would also be true to say that the tracks and trains were there way before that section of town was developed.
