Southwest LRT Maintenance Facility — Opportunity to provide feedback

13 May

I was asked to share this information regarding the possible siting of the Southwest LRT maintenance facility nearby:

Open Houses Planned to Solicit Feedback on Proposed Operation Maintenance Facilities
Three public open houses will be held in mid-May to get feedback on a short list of potential locations for the Southwest LRT Project’s operations and maintenance facility. One of the proposed sites includes property in both St. Louis Park and Hopkins, along the border of the two cities.

The maintenance facility will house 180 permanent operator and maintenance jobs and is where light rail vehicles will be cleaned, stored and undergo light maintenance.

The same information about all of the potential candidates for the maintenance facility location will be presented at each of the three following meetings:

May 13 – 5 to 7:00 p.m. – Eden Prairie City Center, Heritage Rooms, 8080 Mitchell Rd., Eden Prairie. This open house is being held concurrently with Hennepin County’s Transitional Station Area Action Plan meeting at the same location. For details about the county meeting, see Hennepin County’s Southwest Transitway website.

 May 15 – 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. – Southwest Project Office, Park Place West, 6465 Wayzata Blvd, Ste. 500, St. Louis Park.

May 22 – 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. – Hopkins Center for the Arts, Jaycees Studio Room, 1111 Mainstreet, Hopkins.
