It's too bad they're out of funding. I would have loved to have seen a bike/ped master plan between the 3 cities, including bike/ped bridges over 494. Access points over 494 are spaced far too infrequently and the ones that do exist are extremely hostile and dangerous freeway interchanges. A bike/ped bridge at Knox Avenue would be a great start, then a 2nd one on the east side of 35W

The do.town funding came from the tobacco settlement. Not sure how this is a smoking cessation program.

I just googled Katherine Bass and in addition to working for Blue Cross, she also sits on the Transportation Committee in Edina? How is that not a conflict of interest?
