Next year the Central Corridor Light Rail line will begin operations, connecting St. Paul and Minneapolis along University and Washington Avenues.
The Neighborhoods that the train travels through are expecting new development, and managing those improvements while maintaining the existing character of the neighborhood is a challenge.
In the Cedar-Riverside Neighborhood, the West Bank Community Development Corporation and the Somali Action Alliance have combined to create a group called “Don’t Pass Us By.” They're sponsoring a forum to talk about light rail develeopment at 2pm on Saturday, June 15th at the Brian Coyle Community Center in Minneapolis.
Tim Mungavan is executive director of the West Bank Community Development Corporation. He talked with host Paul Brohaugh on KFAI's The Morning Blend.
