Senator Higgins, I urge you to reconsider your position on the D1 Alternative for light rail. Dowm sides? Golden Valley is a pass through, not a beneficiary. No parking. No option for transit oriented development. Destruction of prized natural habitat. I am a transit proponent, do not own a car, and planned to retire in Golden Valley. Theoretically, I am a customer. But it is a bad option, as is the D2 in North Minneapolis. If you want to sacrifice Golden Valley in favor of Brooklyn Center, just be clear that that's what you're doing. A better option? Go back to the drawing board and find another option with true social benefit. The D1 has mo connection to North Memorial, the D2 goes down Penn, which is too narrow. Way too many negatives all around, except for Brooklyn Center residents. Karen Lehman
