MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak says city leaders will meet with Minnesota Vikings officials soon to narrow a list of three potential sites for a new stadium.

The Vikings prefer a site in the St. Paul suburb of Arden Hills. But legislators this week urged both the Vikings and Rybak to work together to figure out which of the Minneapolis sites should get serious consideration too.

Rybak said in an interview on WCCO-AM Thursday that the meeting would take place before next Tuesday’s stadium hearing at the Capitol.

Rybak says he has always favored building on the current Metrodome site because it’s been proven the site can work. But he says two other sites on the western edge of downtown are also good.
