Who we are…
We are people that love Minneapolis.
Two light rail lines are dangerously close to being fully approved and constructed in Minneapolis. The “preferred route” of the Southwest Corridor will go from Eden Prairie to downtown Minneapolis along the Cedar Lake Trails, while the Northwest Bottineau Boulevard Transitway, connecting Brooklyn Park to downtown Minneapolis, has a “preferred route” that takes it through Theodore Wirth Park. The reason these lines are being constructed through parks is to save money (by not having to build around existing structures) and to limit opposition (by limiting the people disrupted by construction). This is not a solution!
Please use this site to learn more about these projects, and to connect with the community to oppose these plans. On the right side of the page are posts with maps and information about the agencies involved.
