St. Paul Light Rail

Location

St. Paul , Minnesota

Organization

ISAIAH, Policy Link, Take Action Minnesota

ISAIAH, TakeAction Minnesota and PolicyLink worked together in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area to conduct an HIA of proposed land-use changes related to a new light rail transit line that will connect the Twin Cities. The Central Corridor Light Rail Transit line, which runs through low-income and immigrant communities in St. Paul, could have wide-reaching, positive impacts on health if it leads to a reduction in air pollution and increased access to grocery stores, parks and open space without displacing local residents and businesses.
