You are invited to submit an idea for a
2017 Open Streets Minneapolis route

Please submit one application per route idea. Although a street (or streets as part of a route) must be explicitly identified, final end points do not need to be decided by the respondent in this initial stage. You are welcome to express interest in either an existing or new route.

Respondents who propose a route idea that may potentially meet the goals of Open Streets Minneapolis will be contacted by the Coalition by late-October, 2016. We anticipate that there will be up to eight Open Streets routes chosen for 2017. More details about Open Streets Minneapolis, including history, route characteristics, goals, and roles are available here.

Respondents are encouraged to contact the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition to discuss their interest and ask any questions before they submit an idea. Interested parties can reach Ethan Fawley at [email protected] or 612-964-8902.

If you are interested in potentially being a Local Route Host, which requires providing significant outreach and planning support for the Open Streets event, you should complete the Local Route Host application, instead.

Additionally, the City of Minneapolis and the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition will host a meeting for those parties interested in being a Local Route Host to learn more about the selection process. All respondents are strongly encouraged to attend. See additional event information here.

While applicants are encourage to submit the application through the online form, you can see the application in this pdf as well
