Cedar Rapids Gazette: Agricultural giant Cargill is proposing a new site on private land in Cedar Rapids to build a rail yard for its corn-milling operation, but neighbors continue to raise concerns about noise, property values and other issues in their quiet residential nook just south of downtown. The site would hold about 18 storage tracks, 200 freight cars and one primary engine, and would see four to six trips daily between the rail yard and plant, according to Cargill. Neighbors are making their opposition known.
