It's not about the train, it's about the people!

The Blue Line Extension Anti-displacement Executive Summary is now available! The Blue Line Extension has been in the works for over a decade. For at least that long, corridor communities have been challenging governments and private sector actors to be considerate of the local population to ensure that they are not displaced as a result of development. In response to these concerns and to ensure the Blue Line Extension transit investment benefits current corridor residents and businesses, Hennepin County and the Metropolitan Council initiated an anti displacement initiative and contracted with the University of Minnesota’s Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) to work with community to develop anti displacement policy and strategy recommendations, including the formation of the Blue Line Extension Anti-Displacement Working Group. The full report represents the outcomes of that work; read it and share your anti-displacement priorities here.
