A New Greenway in North Minneapolis?

The City of Minneapolis is in the earliest planning stages for a North Minneapolis Greenway.  A low-traffic street would would be converted with three possible options for a greenway design.  The greenway would start at Victory Memorial Parkway and be a north-south route traveling past Crystal Lake Cemetary, Folwell Park and North Commons Park.

One of the three options for the North Minneapolis Greenway would be a bike boulevard with cars and bicycles sharing the road featuring traffic calming features.  The next option would be a half and half that would contain a trail and car traffic.  Finally, the third option would be a full greenway with no motorized traffic, similar to the Midtown Greenway.  This project comes in response to community interest and would be a great improvement of bike infrastructure in north Minneapolis.

There will be a community open house on Tuesday, October 16th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at Folwell Park Recreation Center to voice your opinions on this project.  You may also share your input by participating in an online survey anytime from October 1st through October 30th.
