Bicycling Update Subscribers,
On Tuesday, October 12th, Public Works will host a public meeting to present a revised draft proposal for the Southern Bike Connection. The meeting will be held at 6:30 pm at the Bethel Evangelical Lutheran Church (4120 17th Avenue S). Flyers have been distributed in the Bancroft, Northrup, and Hale neighborhoods. The meeting will discuss bicycle boulevards on:
• 17th Avenue S, between 38th Street and Minnehaha Parkway
• 12th Avenue S, between Minnehaha Parkway and 54th Street
Minneapolis Public Works has developed a layout (pdf) with several options. All options will not be constructed. The public will be asked to rank preferences for traffic calming and improvements to busy crossings.
If you have feedback or questions, please fill out our online form or contact Shaun Murphy at 612.333.2450 or firstname.lastname@example.org.Despite living in Northrup, we never received a flyer, although we did get the email from the City on this, so I'll count that as sufficient notice. This would be a nice addition to our bike infrastructure, so please come out and support this project if you can.
