The roundtable will be to discuss developments regarding the Bottineau Transitway and to kick off station area planning activities. Public input is a valuable part to the project team to better understand the issues that need to be addressed in upcoming planning work. The meeting is in the fellowship hall of Unity Church, located at 4000 Golden Valley Road in Golden Valley.
The meeting will provide a brief update on the status of ongoing Bottineau LRT corridor planning and related initiatives, followed by facilitated roundtable discussions about the community needs, issues and desired outcomes relative to planning in two station areas–Plymouth Avenue and Golden Valley Road. It will also include updates on related corridor initiatives, such as the Bottineau Transitway Health Impact Assessment, the Penn Avenue Community Works project in Minneapolis and the Theodore Wirth Regional Park Master Plan in Golden Valley, as well as updates from the Theodore Wirth Regional Park Bottineau Transitway Design Forum.
A second roundtable event in Minneapolis will cover similar information relative to planning for station areas at Penn Avenue and Van White Blvd.
Roundtable attendees will be asked to share insights and perspectives through small group discussions while learning more about the planning initiatives for the station areas.
