A community meeting will be held Wednesday to discuss affordable housing along the Central Corridor light rail line that will connect downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul via University Avenue.
Officials say affordable housing is important for the corridor and they are looking at options that range from stabilizing existing affordable single-family homes to constructing new mixed-used buildings that include affordable housing.
The meeting Wednesday runs from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Profile Event Center, 2630 University Ave. SE.
Ryan Currens, from the city of Seattle, will speak, and project planners will present maps and information about existing affordable housing and current affordable housing plans and policies. Participants will break into small groups to talk about affordable housing corridor-wide and within sub-areas along the corridor.
Input will be gathered by a group that will present draft options at an Aug. 24 forum.
