Meeting Highlights from 5-6-19 Transportation Committee Meeting

AARP grant proposal submitted

  • Submitted a proposal for community action events to support a more accessible public area at the Midway SuperTarget

 Snelling/Englewood Update

  • Will reach out to RN at Public Works for an update. The general consensus from the group was that both options (traffic signal and flashing light) would be preferable over the current situation. We also discussed hosting a community forum to invite residents, HU staff/students to discuss the 2 options. Brenda Thomas (MnDOT's Engagement and Strategy Director) has been very helpful in assisting HMC with understanding the current and future projects scheduled in the area and may be open to helping us host.

MnDOT public involvement process

  • MnDOT public involvement process document shared.

Stadium Feedback and Next steps

  • General consensus: “traffic/parking issues weren’t as bad as some people thought they would be”
  • May 22nd meeting:  Follow up meeting between the Stadium Task Force (and District Council leadership) and City of St Paul staff. Rough agenda can include (in no particular order, and not limited to): - Update from city staff on what they’re hearing on the website and through other channels - Update from Commander Hallstrom on game day operations, including what’s working, what needs to improve, what we’re learning, etc - Input from task force and neighborhood members about what they’re seeing/hearing that’s not been discussed yet
