Draft environmental review for ballpark unveiled


A draft environmental review of the new ballpark contains details about everything from jammed intersections to bad odors.

The large scale of the ballpark project requires Hennepin County to create an environmental impact statement (EIS) that evaluates the project’s prospective impact on the neighborhood and suggests how to mitigate that impact. The study encompasses air quality, traffic congestion, site contamination, lighting, noise and construction-related impacts.

The draft EIS was scheduled to be posted on the county’s website on Jan. 29.
