Apply to Host a 2014 Bikeable Community Workshop
Release Date: Jan 21, 2014
The Minnesota Department of Health, in partnership with MnDOT and the Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota, is seeking communities interested in hosting a 2014 Bikeable Community Workshop. These workshops train local, county and regional staff, and advocate for how to plan and support more Bike Friendly Communities to encourage more people to bike more often in Minnesota. Participants go on a short bike ride to assess the community’s bicycle facilities and create a subsequent action plan.
Target audiences include engineers, law enforcement, planners, public health practitioners, school administrators, elected officials and advocates. Communities participating in the training have the opportunity to learn more about how to achieve the following outcomes:
- Development of pedestrian/bicycle/transportation master/ SRTS plan
- Policies and ordinances that support bicycling
- Ability to affect the systems cities/counties use to build safe walking and bicycling facilities
If you are interested in this opportunity, please complete the online application and contact Amber Dallman, MDH Physical Activity Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants are asked to describe what characteristics make their community a good candidate for the Bikeable Community Workshop. Applications are due by Feb. 14, 2014.
