SWLRT: Urban Flight, Sprawl, and Rail Transit

SWLRT: Urban Flight, Sprawl, and Rail Transit

Please see the attached excerpt of Cathy Deikman’s recent article discussing the anti-Minneapolis SWLRT plan from the August 21, 2015 issue of the Hill & Lake Press. Note that Deikman’s well documented piece speaks about the human costs. The article makes clear the bias toward white suburban residents by the overwhelmingly white suburban elected Hennepin County Commission and appointed Metropolitan Council members. Note: Cathy Deikman is a CIDNA resident

The environmental catastrophe to the Chain of Lakes and Kenilworth bike trail with the proposed SWLRT has been the subject of much other discussion.
