Penn Avenue South Reconstruction Meeting Tonight

Relatively speaking, 50 years is a really long time.    Yet, according to the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition, if this opportunity to add bike friendly features to Penn Ave S is missed, we won’t have another shot until 2062.

Show your support to help make Penn ave from 50th Street to Highway 62 a bike friendly place to be.  Here is the information from the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition.

What: Public meeting on Penn Avenue South reconstruction between 50th Street and Hwy 62

What’s at stake: Potential bike path on Penn Avenue South between 50th Street and Hwy 62

When: Tuesday, March 6 at 6pm (see below for contact info if you can’t make the meeting)

Where: Armatage Recreation Center (2500 57th Street West)

Why: Bicycle supporters are needed to support the path.

Hopefully, with enough public support this project can get done in the way it should.  Discussion, feedback from the public and city leaders listening to what their constituents have to say, besides at most it would cost 1/10,000 of what the Vikings Stadium would cost.

Here is a potential outcome for the project:

    I don’t understand why this is the last chance for 50 years, but for my MN readers this is the time to get out there and be counted.
