Project Description

Not PicturedJessica Peterson’s work as a public health educator has given her a firsthand look at the importance of investing in complete streets in Greater Minnesota. “Horizon SHIP has had a lot of success over the past 5-8 years around active living, in particular complete street infrastructure projects in downtowns. Alexandria, Osakis, Starbuck, and Glenwood are now in various stages of that work,” she said. “These cities know that in order to stay competitive and attract residents and visitors, they must plan for pedestrians, bicyclists, and motor vehicle traffic. More funding for pedestrian and biking projects throughout Minnesota would help expand this work and attract people to our communities.”
