Edina to host July 25 conversation on study of passenger rail

The city of Edina is talking to residents and businesses about the possibility of studying passenger rail service through the city, specifically in the Dan Patch Corridor.

The Dan Patch corridor runs north-south through Edina immediately west of Highway 100.

Through a combination of public input and analysis of existing conditions and policies, the Transportation Commission will make a recommendation to the city council in September regarding future study of passenger rail in Edina.

In two weeks, the city and its project consultant will host the first of two community conversations on this topic. The conversation is 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, July 25, at the Public Works & Park Maintenance Facility, 7450 Metro Blvd.

All are welcome to drop in at any time between 5-7 p.m. to view information boards and participate in discussion tables with project staff and other members of the community.

To learn more about the project, visit the project website, EdinaMN.gov/passenger-rail-report. An online survey will also be available to provide input for those unable to attend the community conversation.
