Neighborhood Advocacy for Pedestrian Realm Improvements in the Central Corridor

The District Councils Collaborative of Saint Paul and Minneapolis (DCC) was formed in 2006 to facilitate community participation in the development of the Central Corridor Light-Rail Transit Project. The vast majority of Central Corridor LRT riders are expected to either walk, bike, or take a bus to the station. The quality of the pedestrian realm, the continuity of the pedestrian network, and the pedestrian’s sense of personal safety and security are critical to encouraging people to walk to stations. Several studies have been undertaken to identify where and what types of improvements are needed, their cost, and how they might be funded. Hayley Bonsteel, a student in the College of Design, will create a GIS map of the various pedestrian realm plans and summarize key themes for the whole corridor. The results will be used to advocate for pedestrian realm improvements.
