A meeting to consider a possible St. Paul Pedestrian Plan will be held Wednesday night, sponsored by the District Councils Collaborative of Saint Paul and Minneapolis.
Organizers say that, following the adoption in March of a St. Paul Bicycle Plan, the city should now consider ways to make the city more walker-friendly, too.
The 6:30 p.m. meeting will be at the Western District Police Station, 389 Hamline Av.
Mackenzie Turner Bargen, a Minneapolis Public Works associate transportation planner, will speak on the Minneapolis Pedestrian Plan, which is in place with the goal of “making Minneapolis a great walking city where people choose to walk for transportation, recreation, and health.”
Then a panel will look at ways that a similar St. Paul Pedestrian Plan might be drafted. Anne White, Vice Chair, District Councils Collaborativehe panelists will moderate a panel with:
• Rebecca Airmet, Community member, Summit-University Planning Council Board, Women on Bikes Advisory Board
• Craig Churchward, FASLA, Transportation Landscape Architect, Avenue Design Partners
• Kristin Jorenby, Assistant Director, Olmstead Implementation Office
