If you live or work in the St. Paul Central Corridor area and want to have a say about it, the Central Corridor Community Agreement Committee wants you — maybe. The 30-member committee has 20 seats for community members, and two St. Paul seats are vacant. The first qualification, however, will knock out a few of the critics. In order to serve on the committee, the applicant must “accept that the Central Corridor LRT project is being built.” After that, according to the press release, the applicant should:
- commit to equitable community benefits;
- commit to an inclusive process that is transparent and accountable to corridor stakeholders;
- bring a constituency, perspective or resources (broadly defined) to the table; and
- although the exact time commitment involved is unknown, participate in monthly meetings and be available to communicate between meetings over e-mail or phone at a minimum.
The deadline for applications is Wednesday, August 24, and the application is online here. For more information, contact Karyssa Jackson at 651-528-8165 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Current CACC members are listed on the website.
Coverage of issues and events that affect Central Corridor neighborhoods and communities is funded in part by a grant from Central Corridor Collaborative.
