Minneapolis Bike, Walk, and Roll Plan Meeting Tonight

Just saw this on the Longfellow River Gorge mailing list. The way people are using the Minneapolis Parks is changing (or has already changed) so it’s worth bringing in some up to date perspectives on how to construct usable trails and facilities for how people use the system now and in the future.

For example, rollerblading was nothing 30 years ago. Not people expect trails to be wide and smooth enough to skate safely. Then there’s the choice of surface for running trails debate. Yadda yadda.

The Minneapolis Park Board will hold public meetings in February to gather citizen input for the Bike, Walk, and Roll Activity Plan for Minneapolis parks.
