Light rail is November meeting topic

Kenwood residents who want their voices heard on the proposed Southwest Light Rail Transit line should plan on attending their neighborhood group’s November meeting.

Anticipating the Oct. 12 release of the draft environmental impact statement on the light rail line, the Kenwood Isles Area Association (KIAA) Board of Directors plans to dedicate its Nov. 5 meeting to the topic. Like other neighborhoods along the transit route, KIAA plans to submit a response to the document detailing ideas for mitigating noise and traffic impacts on the neighborhood and other concerns.

In October, board members discussed gathering neighborhood feedback at the November meeting before finalizing their response in December.
