Submitted by Councilmember Russ StarkMy office has been working with community partners and business organizations to bring the first-ever Open Streets event to Saint Paul, and specifically University Avenue, on September 15. Open Streets is an event where people-powered transportation –pedestrians, rollerbladers, bicyclists, tricyclists, skateboarders – take over the street where cars and trucks normally use the space. These events are growing in popularity across the state of Minnesota and across the world. It will be a great opportunity to get out and get active with family, friends and neighbors, as well as to visit University Avenue now that light rail construction is nearly complete. Visit businesses that are old favorites and find some new favorites, too.
Please mark your calendar, spread the word to friends, and even consider volunteering for part of the time.
