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 based on these criteria. Input is now being sought from school principals and the SRTS workgroup on the identified routes.

Your feedback is also welcomed. Please review the draft of the Walk & Bike Map, examining the identified routes to your school. (Zoom into your school area by using the zoom (+) tool at the bottom center of the map. Identified walk/bike routes are in blue.) Then provide feedback on potential issues or concerns. Supportive comments are also welcome. Submit your feedback to Jennifer.bordon@mpls.mn.k12.us. Please identify your school community and your role in that community.
