Volunteers Power Our Streets Minneapolis!
The work of Our Streets Minneapolis is possible because of volunteers like you. Here’s how you can make an impact on the future of transportation equity in our city:
Open Streets Minneapolis
Join in opening the streets to thousands of people! Each year, communities across the city gather to experience a day on their street without cars. By volunteering at an Open Streets event, you can help us create a welcoming and engaging environment for visitors, organizations, and businesses across the city. With a variety of opportunities, this is a great way to learn about the work that Our Streets does and share our mission with others.
Twin Cities Boulevard
Rethinking I-94 is a once in a lifetime opportunity to reimagine the I-94 corridor and to put the needs of people and the planet ahead of automobile traffic .The Twin Cities Boulevard is a community vision to repair I-94’s harms and bring racial, environmental & economic justice to surrounding communities. By canvassing with the team, you can help us engage the community and make this vision a reality.
Bring Back 6th
Our Streets Minneapolis and Harrison Neighborhood Association are partnering to focus on transforming Olson Memorial Highway in North Minneapolis to put people and the community first, and bringing back walkability, inviting green spaces, and a thriving cultural corridor that provides economic opportunity and amenities that the former Sixth Ave North provided to the community. By canvassing with the team, you can help us engage the community on important transportation issues that impact them.
Restore the Whittier Lyndale Bikeway Timeline
We are calling on the City of Minneapolis to complete the Whittier Lyndale Bikeway and restore the 2023 timeline for the 1st Ave S reconstruction. Both projects were previously delayed, meaning that people continue to have no easy route from South Minneapolis to downtown.
