The City of Minneapolis Public Works Department is leading a city-wide walk and bike to school (+parks & libraries) mapping project. Working with MPS Safe Routes to School, the City identified routes to school on these criteria. Input is now being sought on the identified routes. We are asking that school principals (or their designee/s) review the identified routes to their school for potential issues or concerns. Supportive comments are also welcomed. As it makes sense, you may share the route map with people in your school community for feedback.

To open the map, click on the picture of the map to the right. Zoom into your school area by using the zoom (+) tool at the bottom center of the map. Identified walk/bike routes are in blue.

Feedback Due: Monday, January 13.

Submit feedback to Julie Danzl, MPS Healthy Kids Focused Students, julie.danzl@mpls.k12.mn.us and Forrest Hardy, City of Minneapolis Safe Routes to School,  Forrest.Hardy@minneapolismn.gov 

If you would like a poster size copy of the map, please contact Forrest directly at Forrest.Hardy@minneapolismn.gov.
