We hosted a series of pedestrian safety themed events on May 3rd.
At 1:00 p.m. volunteers and St. Paul Police continued their Stop For Me Campaign at Kellogg Blvd near the Minnesota History Center where a pedestrian was killed in a crash earlier this year. The education and enforcement campaign is designed to improve safety for people who use St. Paul’s sidewalks and cross our streets and is a partnership between the Saint Paul Police, District Councils, and Saint Paul Smart Trips.
Charles Marohn of Strong Towns hosted a #CurbsideChat in with the goal of enhancing and encouraging conversation on financial resilience as well as pedestrian infrastructure and road safety. The event was from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. at the Minnesota History Center in the 3M Auditorium.
The day concluded at the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation at 6:00 p.m. where participants heard from a local pedestrian safety panel and Charles Marohn.
