Why Franklin Avenue Matters
"I know from our community members as well as my own experience as a pedestrian, bus rider, bicyclist and driver who regularly uses Franklin Avenue just how unsafe it is for those of us who live, work and play along it. For too long the priority of the street's design has been moving cars through the neighborhood at rush hour rather than the many residents and businesses along the corridor. I believe we can make Franklin - and other County roads in Minneapolis - much safer than they are today, which is why I am proud to be part of this campaign."
