Thank you to everyone who attended our informational forum, March 21 at the
University of St. Thomas

The first SOS informational forum on the City of
St. Paul's proposed Summit Avenue Regional Trail (SART) and road construction drew a crowd of interested community members, journalists, politicians and others.

The SOS presentation demonstrated what the city's untenable SART and road construction plan along Summit Avenue will mean for bikers, walkers, students, neighbors, business owners, environmentalists, tax payers and others. We appreciate everyone who came out to listen, ask questions and give feedback.

However, there is still so much to do. ACT NOW: Contact your City Council member, the Mayor's office, the Met Council and Parks & Recreation staff and commissioners to voice your opposition to the proposed trail. Find links to email addresses HERE.
Mark your calendar for the next
Parks and Recreation Commission Meeting, April 13,
6:30 - 8 p.m., at Palace Community Center.
Plan to attend wearing green and stand up for Summit Avenue.

Deadline to submit your public comments online is noon, April 13.
To send a comment, email ParksCommission@ci.stpaul.mn.us and
be sure to put PRC Public Comments in the subject line.

Find meeting details HERE.

Why not build a better bike path instead?

Introducing the proposed Grace Trail and Short Line: A concept for a safer route of separated network trails. This cycle "freeway" would connect the Minneapolis Greenway to downtown St. Paul.
