The Green Line: 11 Miles of Hopes, Dreams and Fears
This presentation was filmed at the Music Box Theater on September 23, 2014 for Rail~Volution 2014 in Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN.
The Green Line, the new light rail connecting St. Paul and Minneapolis, is a transformative story more than 30 years in the making. Fraught with politics, lawsuits and lingering scars from a previous transit debacle, the Green Line story is also one of perseverance, creativity and collaboration. How did two cities, joined by foundations, entrepreneurs and artists, come together to pull off this unlikely project? What strategies did they use to win neighborhood support? To save local businesses during construction? To attract new development and ensure affordable housing? The Green Line is more than a rich and instructive case study, it’s a story, told here in a unique live journalistic performance by the people who made it happen.
