Hennepin County is releasing their 5-year capital improvement plan for infrastructure. It’ll be important for us to comment on the current plan and lack of quick build infrastructure improvements to make some of the most dangerous streets in our city safe for people who walk, bike, and use wheelchairs to get around.
Our Streets Minneapolis is considering changing the name of the Downtown Bikeways and Pedestrian Work Groups to create a more accurate and inclusive brand for what we do. Some ideas:
- People for Safer Streets Work Group
- People who Roll Work Group
- People who Bike Work Group
- People on Wheels Work Group
In the future, the meetings are likely to be focused on strategy and around taking actions (e.g. letter writing)
Come to our next meeting Monday, November 4th, 6:00-7:30pm at the Dunn Brothers at 329 W 15th Street to be a part of the discussion! E-mail Ash at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
