The Southwest LRT Community Works Steering Committee provides guidance and direction for the SWLRT Community Works program and advances its goals. Steering Committee meetings generally occur every other month. 

Two advisory committees – the Community Advisory Committee and the Business Advisory Committee - meet monthly to provide regular opportunities for community and business input. Both committees relay their input to the Southwest LRT Corridor Management Committee (managed by the Metropolitan Council) and the Southwest LRT Community Works Steering Committee.

Advisory committees

Two advisory committees meet monthly to provide regular opportunities for community and business input. Members represent communities along the proposed line and are important and knowledgeable links between the light rail project, community works and their communities. If you have concerns or ideas, contact your representative or consider attending a meeting.

Both committees relay their respective communities’ input to the corridor management committee (managed by the Metropolitan Council) and steering committee (managed by Southwest Community Works).
