Brainerd City Council: North 10th Street may see sidewalk expansion


Street and sidewalk projects gained Brainerd City Council approval to go before a public hearing on March 5.

Two of the projects — North 10th and Front streets — come with sidewalk considerations. Extending sidewalks along North 10th Street comes with removal of large maple trees and one large pine.

Council member Kelly Bevans noted North 10th is virtually without sidewalks now as is the south side of Front Street near the city’s police station.
