Southwest Light Rail Presentation

Southwest Light Rail Presentation

Shawn Smith from Kenwood
The Kenwood Isles Area Association has arranged for a presentation by the Metropolitan Council Southwest Project Office regarding the Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Southwest Light Rail Project. This is one of the final steps in the path forward for SWLRT and is the document that will determine final disposition of federal funding and support of the project. There are issues in the construction and operation that are addressed in the statement, many of which have been raised by KIAA. 


The public presentation will be held on Monday June 13th from 6:30PM till 8:00PM in the Community Room at the Kenwood Recreation Center, next to the Kenwood School. There will be a 45 minute presentation by associates of the Met Council, followed by a Question and Answer period.


This is not an official hearing and will not be considered public testimony on the FEIS. Responses to the FEIS should be sent to the Met Council by 5PM on June 13th, the close of the comment period, and be done in writing via the Met Council website:


 Please plan to attend as the next event in the SWLRT process is construction, and now is the time to have your questions answered and gain an understanding of the anticipated impacts on the neighborhood.
