Here is our first-ever list of walking advocacy priorities! We're excited to be working on these with our volunteer Pedestrian Work Group and partners.
Priority policy items to improve walking in Minneapolis
- Have the 2040 Minneapolis comprehensive plan include new walk-friendly policies.
- Improve winter sidewalk and corner maintenance so people can stay walking and rolling year round.
- Improve how we do stop lights to make them friendly to people walking and biking.
- Create and fund a pedestrian crossings improvement program to be able to make more proactive walk safety improvements on streets.
