Midtown Corridor Alternatives Analysis Community Advisory Committee (CAC)

The Midtown Corridor Alternatives Analysis will determine the benefits,
costs and impacts of implementing a transitway along either the Midtown Greenway or Lake Street in south Minneapolis. The project also will recommend the best method of delivering transit service in the Midtown Corridor: light rail, streetcar, bus rapid transit or dedicated busway. The study is anticipated to go through early 2014.

Metro Transit is partnering with the City of Minneapolis, Hennepin County and other community groups on the project. The goal is to improve mobility, increase ridership and enhance transit connections through high‐quality, frequent and reliable transit service in this busy commercial corridor.

The Community Advisory Committee (CAC) is an up to 36‐member body, composed of non‐elected officials representing residents (both owners and renters), businesses (employers, employees), property owners and organizations with diverse knowledge of the Midtown Corridor including experience using public transportation, the Midtown Greenway and Lake Street.

No previous experience required but we are hoping to find people who have experience using public transportation, the Midtown Greenway and Lake Street.  Applications (via link) are due by February 5, 2013.
