Minneapolis Public Works is producing a Safe Routes map to encourage kids to walk or bike to school. These routes will connect schools, parks, and other community destinations and will provide guidance for future infrastructure investment. Public Works is now obtaining feedback on the draft map, and would like community input on the route alignments and the user-friendliness of the map. Public Works staff will be at the Lynnhurst Neighborhood Association meeting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 9 at Lynnhurst Community Center to present the new Safe Routes map. If you are unable to attend that meeting , the FNA Board will discuss the map and gather feedback at its regular meeting on Jan. 8, 2014 at 7 p.m. at Pershing Park.
