City Moves Meeting Date For Bottineau Transitway Decision

As the Bottineau Transitway Draft Environmental Impact Study enters its final phase, the Hennepin County Regional Railroad Authority will select what is called the “Locally Preferred Alternative” (LPA) for the route alignment. Upcoming meetings offer opportunities for information and citizen input.

The Railroad Authority is considering two options for the LPA–the Golden Valley alignment or the Minneapolis alignment. The selected LPA will then move forward for further study.

Citizen input is an important component of the process, and the following meetings will be held before the LPA is selected (note the Golden Valley City Council meeting date has been changed from June 5 to June 19):

June 12, 2012 – 1:30 pm
