Stadium sites raise concern

The priest-rector of the basilica in Minneapolis is calling on parishioners and community members to voice concerns about two proposed Minnesota Vikings’ stadium sites near the church, particularly one that would be about 300 feet away.
While he wants the Vikings to stay in Minnesota, a nearby stadium could negatively affect the basilica, the rector said.
The congregation of more than 6,300 households is made up of many people from the larger Twin Cities metro area and suburbs. Traffic flow and parking are already challenging.
The proposed sites could affect significant revenue streams such as the space the basilica rents out for a charter school, the priest added.
Construction also could impact or possibly “harm” the historic building, he added.
