The county is in the process of creating its first official pedestrian plan. The goal is to increase walking and pedestrian safety throughout the county’s roadway system by creating a plan that will include strategies to support walking through infrastructure, facilities, enforcement, education and evaluation.
The pedestrian plan will ultimately become part of the overall Hennepin County Transportation Systems Plan, as well as complement the county’s Complete Streets policy. Creation of the plan is funded by a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Community Transformation Grant and the Statewide Health Improvement Program.
There will be various opportunities for residents to get involved:
Community engagement meetings have been completed. An online survey was conducted from August-October 2012. In Spring 2013, a draft plan will be posted on this web page for review and comment.
Draft plans and supporting documents will be posted here as they become available.
