Open house seeks public input on new stadium project’s potential environmental impact

The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority is holding an open house to provide information on the required state environmental review process for the new Vikings stadium. The MSFA is also seeking the public’s help in identifying potential impacts stemming from the project.

Currently, the MSFA is working on a Scoping Environmental Assessment Worksheet, which is an early step in the year-long State environmental review process. As part of this, public input is being sought on the project’s potential effects on a variety of issues including traffic, noise, parking and visual aesthetics.

Public Open House  
Tuesday, Oct. 23, 5 to 7 p.m.
Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome - Halsey Hall Room
