Survey aims to increase biking and walking
Brooklyn Center residents are asked to take part in a study about biking and walking that will be used to help develop a pedestrian and bicycle plan for the city.
Information from residents will help assess current conditions and identify where people walk and bike, as well as safety concerns. The study is intended to identify ways to increase biking and walking.
An online survey is available through July 1 [http://www.startribune.com/a2258]. The survey also can be completed using a kiosk at City Hall, and hard copies and surveys translated into Hmong and Spanish are available on request.
