Central Corridor meeting 2-12

Realizing that the presentation they made to Prospect Park residents in January was not tailored specifically enough to residents' concerns and questions, the Metropolitan Council has scheduled another meeting in Prospect Park:

Tuesday, February 12, 7-9 PM
St Frances Cabrini Church
1500 Franklin Ave SE

The questions that will be addressed include:
What is the currently planned route through Prospect Park?
What is the current proposed location and design for the 29th Avenue station?
What changes will be made to University Avenue?
How will it affect traffic patterns and pedestrian crossings?
What are the prospects for Granary Road?

This will likley be the first in a series of meetings as we get a closer look at the Met Councils plans, offer feedback and then review new plans based on the community suggestions. It took several meetings and a number of proposals to come to decisions about the West Bank station and the Met Council made sure that engineers and other professional staff were avaiable for the community. I look forward to a similar process as we work to resolve the issues related to the Corridor in the East Bank and Prospect Park areas.

For some background information you can look here for a recent MPR report.
