With the proper input, BLRT can benefit businesses and diverse communities

Updated: Nov 14


ACER Communications Manager Agnes Omwoyo, writing in the Sun Post, advocates for community engagement in BLRT extension:

"There has been justified frustration with the planned extension of the METRO Blue Line (BLRT), including the failure to negotiate rail access with Burlington Northern Sante Fe Railway, concerns about the safety of the planned on-street option, and fears of repeating the harm done to communities by large infrastructure projects like I-94 did to the Rondo neighborhood. But, we should not give up on the light rail. With the proper community input, the Blue Line can be an economic benefit to all communities in the northwest suburbs."
