New project investments approved

Earlier this month, the communities served by the future Gold Line recommended investing in more project features such as bike and pedestrian paths and electric buses. To read more about the recommendations, read the presentation from the Corridor Management Committee. The Star Tribune also covered the discussion and additional investment – read it here.

Important feedback received for station design

We asked for input on the design of future Gold Line stations and we got it! We talked with over 300 people at events and locations in the corridor, and we had over 380 people take our online survey. This is what we heard:

• Safety and cleanliness are priorities
• Landscaping is one of the most important design features that community members want to see
• Public art, landscaping, and wayfinding signage will help with neighborhood distinction
• Better protection from wind, rain, and snow is important to keep people comfortable
• WiFi and charging outlets are tech features that people would like
• For most stations, a modern or contemporary look was appealing
• In historic neighborhoods, stations should reflect the area’s history

Thanks to all who took time to give us feedback. To read more about the feedback, check out the engagement summary report on the project website.
