The City of Minneapolis is continuing to explore the possibility of converting low-traffic streets in North Minneapolis to a greenway with a safe, accessible route for bicyclists and pedestrians. Residents can take a new online survey now through June 15 to weigh in on the current greenway concept, including the proposed route and greenway types. Neighbors and neighborhood organization representatives will also knock on doors in the Near North, Jordan, Folwell and Webber-Camden neighborhoods to solicit input from a broad group of Northside residents including people who might not be likely to take an online survey. People who completed similar surveys in 2012 and 2013 provided valuable input into the current concept and are requested to complete the new 2014 survey as well: surveymonkey.com/s/nmplsgreenway.
