Bicycle Advisory Committee Resolution

To:       Minneapolis City Council, Minneapolis Public Works

From:     Minneapolis Bicycle Advisory Committee

Date:      September 25, 2019

Subject:  2020 Budget Recommendation


2020 Budget Recommendation

As a Committee, we refer to a consensus of information that notes infrastructure is paramount in changing the way people driving interact with streets (notably the Vision Zero Network and U.S. Department of Justice). If infrastructure is the most important strategy, infrastructure should be the most well-funded solution.


It is concerning to see over $350,000 ongoing dollars proposed for a Traffic Unit when there is only $100,000 in one-time money proposed for Vision Zero Safety Initiatives. If our infrastructure continues to prioritize the movement of cars and trucks at dangerous speeds, we will never reach Vision Zero. The Minneapolis Bicycle Advisory Committee strongly supports prioritizing funding for near-term infrastructure changes that prioritize safety.
