Norco Opposes I-15 HSR Alignment

Norco, self-proclaimed Horse Town USA, where "complete street" means asphalt and a horse trail, has decided to stand in the way of the Corona/1-15 HSR alignment. While I'm not usually a fan of HSR opposition, in this case I welcome their opposition. Riverside wants this train, and any opposition on the I-15 alternative will make it more likely that we get it. I still have my reservations about the proposed station location here in Riverside, but I'd still support March Field over Corona.

I have to wonder, though, why Norco wouldn't want a railroad through their town? It seems like it'd help out that whole "Wild West" feel they're trying to cultivate.
