COMPREHENSIVE AREAWIDE RAILROAD CONSOLIDATION AND RELOCATION STUDY--ST. LOUIS. VOLUME 5 - "ORGANIZATIONAL ALTERNATIVES"

This report on the "Organizational Alternatives" for the Comprehensive Areawide Railroad Consolidation and Relocation Study - St. Louis Region examines the question of selecting a lead agency for the implementation of a railroad relocation project. Existing regional and local agencies are examined from the standpoint of their legal, administrative and fiscal capacity to perform this function. The possibility of a single state agency being provided with the necessary powers and institutional arrangements used for similar projects elsewhere are explored as well as private approaches to the organizational question. A recommendation for the creation of a new "umbrella" agency using the existing Bi-State Development Agency as a foundation upon which to build is included.
