After many years of planning and construction it's great to have an opening day set for the Green Line light rail. I am excited to help plan the opening day celebration at the Raymond Station. Rides will be free throughout the Twin Cities on buses and the blue line all day Saturday and Sunday. First trains on University Avenue will start about 10:00. There will be a celebration at the Raymond Station starting around 9:00 a.m. and lasting until about 4:00 p.m. We will help host the Raymond event, which will include food and presentations. And knowing our neighborhood we will have a lot of cool creative things going on all day!!
More apartments are planned for 2225 University Avenue (next to the McDonald's) This is the former site of Paster Enterprises office building. We are excited to see more density for the neighborhood and more residents to support our local restaurants and retail.
