Non-Motorized Transportation Moves Forward…Downtown

Bill Steve Ross.jpgI was walking across Bridge Square on my way to the post office the other afternoon when I heard someone calling out my name.

It was Bruce Anderson (the photographer for this picture), along with Bill Ostrem, and some guy in a bike suit signed by Lance Armstrong (no kidding).

The mystery guy was Steve Rusk. He is the chair of Edina’s Non-Motorized Transportation Task Force (or whatever they call it up there). Steve was in town to meet with the Northfield group to discuss lessons they’ve learned in that community to our northwest. Edina also has an authentic downtown surrounded by historic residential neighborhoods, so I’m sure they’ve had some experiences worth considering.

Bill told me that he’s going to blog about it as soon as he and Neil Lutsky get back from the gathering of state bicycle leaders.
