WPB commission meeting tonight...All Aboard Florida

Tonight at the West Palm Beach commission meeting All Aboard Florida will be a major topic. From Eliot Kleinberg of the West Palm Beat blog we have this:
Tops on the commission meeting agenda: All Aboard Florida. The board is expected to finally take on All Aboard Florida’s request to close a section of an alleyway between Datura and Evernia streets for its $29 million downtown station. That already had been tabled for Oct. 14 and was tabled again for the Oct. 28 meeting. The commission will also discuss side roads at Clematis and Fern streets. And it will discuss requests by All Aboard about its plans for a transportation hub at the train station. City incentives currently reward developers who build office or hotel space; All Aboard wants to build residences.
