The California High Speed Rail Project is the largest infrastructure project in the Central Valley and Fresno. In preparation for her organization’s role in assisting local businesses, farmers and residents affected by the High Speed Rail Project, Eager researched and toured similar international projects. She will share information on these projects as well as current local construction developments and the economic impact of the California project. Please join us to learn firsthand about how the project will affect the Central Valley's economic climate.
