At 5:30pm on Wednesday, March 18, on the 3rd floor of City Hall, the Saint Paul City Council will hold a public hearing and vote on the Saint Paul Bikeways Plan. We urge all bicyclists to attend and show their support to the Council. There is major security at City Hall, so don’t try to bring in any bike tools or large metal objects. In the past, security has confiscated or “held” bike helmets so it’s probably a good idea to lock your helmet to your bike and not try to bring it inside. If the plan passes, there will be an after-party at Amsterdam Bar (on the corner of 6th and Wabasha). Turn out early, it will be the first thing on the Council’s agenda.
On February 27, 2015, the Draft Saint Paul Bikeways Plan unanimously passed the Saint Paul Planning Commission. Based on recommendations from the Transportation Committee, 7th street (East and West) and a couple other things were added to the plan. You can download the latest draft of the plan and it’s “Maps and Figures” at http://www.stpaul.gov/bikeplan
The plan now goes to the Saint Paul City Council for a vote, probably sometime in March or early April. If you haven’t done it already, e-mail your City Council representative and tell them that you support the plan and hope they will approve it.

On Sunday, September 21, 2014, University Avenue will be closed to car traffic between Lexington Parkway and Marion Street. There will be food, vendors, music, dance, games and other activities. Please come by foot or bike. Last year’s event was a lot of fun with hundreds (or even thousands) of people. For more details, see http://stpaulopenstreets.org/
