Here is this week’s edition of Lakeville Messages, which highlights the METRO Red Line informational open house.
Here is the text of the story:
The public is invited to learn more about the Metro Red Line project and the potential for development and redevelopment along the route:
Open house, 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14
Apple Valley Transit Station, 15450 Cedar Ave.
The Metro Red Line recently brought station-to-station bus rapid transit service along Cedar Avenue, connecting Apple Valley to the Mall of America with a few stops in between. The line will travel on the new bus-only shoulder lanes along Cedar Avenue.
A Market and Development Study, funded by the the Metropolitan Council, is being undertaken to identify strategies to encourage transit-supportive development and redevelopment around six stations along the route, including a future connection to the Red Line in Lakeville.
The public is invited to learn more about the project, view draft recommendations, and share comments on development and the future of station areas at the open house. For more information, contact Joe Morneau, Dakota County Transit Specialist, 952-891-7986 or firstname.lastname@example.org
