The topic of the forum is the future of transportation in Minneapolis. Transportation is one of the most important issues facing Minneapolis. What will the next mayor’s positions be on supporting all modes of transportation? How can we accelerate transit ridership? How can we move Minneapolis toward sustainable active lifestyles? We hope the event will allow the mayoral candidates to express their plans to make it easier to move around Minneapolis.
The forum will be moderated by Paula Pentel, coordinator of the Urban Studies Program at the University of Minnesota.
Open Streets allows families and neighbors to come together to mingle, have fun and shop in a safe, car-free environment. There will be numerous activities for children and families along the street. The activities are part of Play Streets, a national initiative designed to offer a high-impact approach to increasing physical activity by temporarily turning a street into a play area. Businesses along the street will be offering specials to people passing by on foot and bike.
