Physical Activity: Active Transportation

Active Living Plans and Resources

How communities are becoming more active

Across Minnesota, communities are making it easier to bike and walk. Cities and counties are working on creating master walk and bike plans; updating municipal plans to include Complete Streets with sidewalks and crosswalks; increasing access to connected walking and bicycling networks; connecting and promoting trail systems; and collaborating on projects that improve walkability and bikeability in communities.

With support from the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP), local public health agencies across the state are working with communities that want to make active living easier.

The SHIP Active Living in Communities Implementation (PDF) provides a description and scope of the strategy.
