We formed streets.mn because we think transportation and land use news and information in Minnesota can be done better. This site explores the pressing issues facing our cities, towns, neighborhoods and the places in between.
To foster positive connections and inclusive conversations about better places in Minnesota.
A better place is one that is…
People-centered: transportation and public spaces should center on people rather than private vehicles
Future-oriented: the built environment should be designed for the needs of future generations, and in the context of a rapidly changing non-human world
Justice-driven: cities, towns, and streets should empower and include people of all ages, especially the vulnerable and marginalized
Delight-cultivating: places should inspire happiness and wonder in all seasons and all times of the night and day
