CDG designed and led a creative and inclusive process of community engagement for the Hennepin County Bicycle Transportation Plan. CDG developed the project’s Community Engagement Plan, developed workshop activities, and led and facilitated listening sessions with communities throughout the county, with special emphasis on connecting with ethnic, cultural and health disparity communities.
In addition, CDG contributed framework approaches for design recommendations that expand use of bicycling by making it a more comfortable, safe and inviting activity for people of all ages, abilities and skill levels.
The Plan, jointly managed by Hennepin County and Three Rivers Park District, will guide where, when and how the county and the parks district will build bikeways. The vision and network described by the Plan is expected to be developed through 2040. The Plan underwent extensive public review and was adopted by the Hennepin County Board of Commissioners in April 2015.
