Dakota County, Minnesota “Pedestrian and Bicycle Transportation Options”
On December 7, Jim Charlier presented a workshop for local government planners, engineers and public health officials on implementation perspectives for active transportation planning.The half-day event was held at the Rosemount Community Center. Also appearing on the agenda were Mary Montagne (Dakota County Public Health Department), Gary Anger (Red Pine Elementary School) and Pat Stieg (Dakota County Health Department).
This workshop was funded in part through a BlueCross BlueShield Grant partnership and with assistance from the Active Living by Design program at University of North Carolina. One purpose of the workshop was to provide technical assistance for Dakota County and the cities and towns in the County, all of which are preparing Comprehensive Plan Updates by the end of 2008. It is anticipated many of these local plans will incorporate active transportation goals and objectives and will set the stage for continued improvements in the local walking and bicycling environments.
