Board approves LRT resolution
A resolution calling on regional elected officials to “demand the highest design standards and most effective mitigation practices” of a proposed light rail transit project was approved Feb. 7 by the Kenwood Isles Area Association (KIAA).
The document outlined general goals for the Southwest Light Rail Transit project, which is intended to connect Eden Prairie and Downtown Minneapolis. The rail line would run through the Kenwood, Cedar-Isles-Dean, West Calhoun and Lowry Hill neighborhoods in the Kenilworth Corridor, which now carries a freight rail line and biking and walking paths.
The resolution, jointly drafted by representatives of those four neighborhoods, included four general goals for the project: maintaining “livable communities”; ensuring safe use of parks and trails; protecting green space; and improving traffic and congestion. The other neighborhood boards were expected to approve the resolution, as well.
