A source close to Brightline confirmed to WPTV that five, not three, proposals were submitted to the private passenger rail for a potential Treasure Coast station.
However, who those applicants are is still a mystery.
WPTV previously confirmed and reported on three applicants: the city of Stuart and Martin Countys joint proposal, one from the city of Fort Pierce and the last from Audubon Development for the Kings Landing plot of land in Fort Pierce.
Brightline is not releasing who the other two applicants are but Fort pierce Mayor Linda Hudson told WPTV it doesnt matter and released the following statement to News Channel 5 reading in part:
Two more possible proposals to Brightline for a Treasure Coast station doesnt dampen our enthusiasm or confidence. We believe our city of Fort Pierce is the preferred location, and we are excited about both Fort Pierce proposals.
Brightline has promised to make a decision on a station sometime in this first quarter of 2024.
