Help the City improve walking in Minneapolis by attending an open house to hear more about the City’s Pedestrian Master Plan and sharing your thoughts and ideas on walking in Minneapolis. Participants will be invited to discuss some of the major challenges the City faces in meeting pedestrian needs and best practices for improving walking in Minneapolis. This is the second Pedestrian Master Plan public meeting on shaping the city’s first Pedestrian Master Plan. More than 100 people attended the first open house in March. The City Council directed the preparation of a citywide Pedestrian Master Plan, which will be completed by the end of 2008. The plan will include recommendations on policies, projects and procedures related to pedestrian facilities and programs. The plan is funded by a federal Non-Motorized Transportation Project grant and a grant from Blue Cross/Blue Shield.
