The Metropolitan Council will host two facilitated public community meetings focused on studies that are currently underway in the Kenilworth area of Minneapolis, where the proposed Southwest Light-Rail Transit Project would extend LRT from downtown Minneapolis to St. Louis Park, Hopkins, Minnetonka, and Eden Prairie.

Southwest LRT town hall/community Meetings

In December 2013, the Southwest LRT project began three studies to clarify important issues that affect the proposed line:

Draft results of these studies are expected in early 2014, when there will be more opportunities for public comment.

These meetings will provide opportunities to learn about these studies, talk to project staff and discuss the study scopes with invited elected officials.

Any individual who requires assistance to participate should contact Southwest LRT Community Outreach Coordinator Daren Nyquist at [email protected] or 612-373-3894 at least seven business days in advance of the scheduled meeting.
