Community Outreach Coordinators

Connecting the Public with the Southwest LRT Project

Community Outreach Coordinators are the first point of contact for anyone with questions or concerns about the Southwest LRT Project. They are available to provide detailed information about current and future activities, and will work with property owners and area residents to minimize disruption.

Each of the Southwest LRT Community Outreach Coordinators is responsible for outreach to the community along a different segment of the route. Download a  map of the community outreach areas [PDF] including Outreach Coordinators' contact information.
