The podcast this week is a conversation with two members of the Minneapolis Pedestrian Advisory Committee, Scott Engel and Peter Janelle. The Pedestrian Advisory Committee, or PAC, is one of the city’s citizen committees, and the PAC advises city staff and elected officials on how to improve walking in the city.
Scott, Peter, I sat down a little while back at Gigi’s Café in South Minneapolis, which was a bit busy and noisy, I’m sorry to say. We chatted about the challenges of walking in Minneapolis, why its necessary to think about walking holistically, and some of the progress they’ve made in the last few years.
