Public Involvement

Engagement with the public is the key to improving transit service

Community Outreach Coordinators

The Southwest LRT Community Outreach Coordinators are the first point of contact for members of the public, community organizations and corridor businesses. They are available to answer questions, receive input on the project, and help resolve issues. 

Each of the Project's Outreach Coordinators is responsible for outreach to the community along a different segment of the route. To learn more, download a map of the Community Outreach Coordinator territories [PDF] or visit the Community Outreach Coordinators page

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.
