The Minneapolis City Council will take up a number of measures at its meeting tomorrow morning, including a bicycle master plan for the city.
The plan, the culmination of several years of staff work and community meetings,will replace the 2001 Bikeways Master Plan and the 2001 Five-Year Bikeways Plan. The plan's authors aim to create 183 miles of new bike lanes and trails over 30 years, cut bicycle theft, and dramatically reduce bicycle injuries.
The Council will also vote on the appointment of Maria Sarabia to the Neighborhood and Community Engagement Commission to represent Ward 10 for a term to run through June 2013.
Councilmember Meg Tuthill's proposed ordinance restricting patios at bars and restaurants was initially slated to be heard during tomorrow's meeting. On Thursday morning, however, Tuthill proposed to put off consideration of the measure until the December 9 council meeting. Tuthill could not be reached for comment, but her office said she had postponed her measure to give noise patrols and sound checks proposed by bar owners time to work.
