Open Streets 2018!
Open Streets is not unique to Itasca County, but is an international movement intended to help community members rethink their streets as public spaces.
In an Open Streets event, some public streets are closed to vehicle traffic, and open for active transportation: run, walk, bike, roll! This encourages physical activity while highlighting the benefits of walking and biking to community destinations.
This year, we are focusing on the downtown business area, and allowing people and families to experience downtown in a new way. We have more time to appreciate our surroundings when on foot or on bike!
