    Public comments needed on the environmental assessment

    The METRO Gold Line BRT Environmental Assessment is now available for review and public comment. Comments will be accepted from October 7 to November 6, 2019.

    The environmental assessment is an analysis required by the state and federal governments that evaluates potential environmental, social, economic and transportation benefits and impacts from the project’s construction and operations. Read the document on the Gold Line website or visit one of the public locations listed on the project website to view a copy.

    You can submit comments a variety of ways:

    What happens to my comment?
    Public comments submitted on the environmental assessment will be used by the Federal Transit Administration and the Metropolitan Council in deciding whether this project could result in significant impacts to the environment and whether additional analysis is needed to obtain environmental approval. All comments will be available in the public record, and substantive comments will be responded to in the environmental decision document.
