Minneapolis is not holding out on Southwest LRT to force the Met Council to build a streetcar,” Hodges said last week.

The Met Council and city haven’t commented on details of the negotiations, mediated by a retired federal judge. “They are productive discussions, and we continue to move the ball forward,” Fuhrmann said.

Hennepin County Commissioner Mike Opat said cities are more emboldened to make demands because of resistance by Minneapolis to grant consent and instead negotiate changes.
