Station Area Planning
The Southwest LRT Community Works Project, led by Hennepin County, is a collaborative effort to capitalize on the opportunities light rail has to offer the region. The project partners are working together to address economic competitiveness and job growth; housing choices; quality neighborhoods; and critical connections along the light-rail route.
For more information about public involvement in the planning process for station area development, visit Hennepin County's Southwest Community Works website.
