Whether you are a Vikings fan or not, this stadium will be a multipurpose stadium and we should expect that it be fully accessible and clearly exceed minimum standards. It has often been called the People’s Stadium – let’s make sure it can be used and enjoyed by all the people!!
Help us send a strong message to the stakeholders of this event (The Minnesota Vikings, the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority and HKS Sports & Entertainment) by attending this public meeting & signing up for the public comment period.
Some examples of what to ask for:
- A fully accessible and usable stadium that exceeds minimum standards.
- An Accessibility Advisory Committee established to monitor and advise on stadium access issues.
- The same nationally recognized access consultants that the Twins Organization used, hired for this project.
