Pedestrian System Plan

The Minnesota Department of Health and MnDOT are currently undergoing the development of a first-ever statewide Pedestrian System Plan. Given the extensive gathering and review of data, the Plan has been divided into two phases.

Phase I involves background research and internal information gathering as to the current state of the pedestrian environment across the state. Phase II consists of developing a statewide vision for pedestrians.

Phase II began with a visioning session on Wednesday, August 13th, 2014, at Union Depot in St. Paul. Various stakeholders were invited to provide input on a more pedestrian-friendly Minnesota. The purpose of the meeting was to:

  • Identify a collective vision for a pedestrian-friendly Minnesota
  • Identify related stake holder goals
