Survey responses needed

Earlier this month 1,000 questionnaires were mailed to randomly selected Brainerd households. The questionnaire is designed to seek information about walking, biking and skateboarding in the city. To date 120 questionnaires have been returned. If you are one of the 880 households that has not returned the questionnaire, please take a few minutes to fill it out and return to the city.

The city council's strategic plan includes creating a more walkable and bikeable city and addressing the need for a skate park. A Walkable Bikeable City Committee has been established to recommend how to improve walking and biking opportunities and to address the skate park need. The committee is seeking your input on these issues.

If you are a household that did not receive a mailed questionnaire the committee would also like to hear from you. The questionnaire is on the city of Brainerd website at and at the Brainerd Public Library. Please take a few minutes to fill it out.

Your input is important in creating a more walkable and bikeable community.

Thank you!
