Hennepin County SHIP

SHIP story:

"Active Living and SHIP dollars have provided New Hope an incredible opportunity to coordinate and communicate with its adjoining communities, Hennepin County, and our school district. We have started Complete Streets initiatives, Safe Routes to Schools, bike and walking projects, as well as public health and wellness awareness. We are putting forth a concerted effort to coordinate various department activities with the public’s health in mind.
— Kathi Hemken, Mayor of New Hope.
