What would it take to get you walking more?

Duluth-Superior Interstate Council

You don't have to hike or bike to get the full measure of our pretty community - just wandering around your neighborhood or to the store or a park has its charms.

What would it take to get you out walking more, though? Curb cuts? Mid-block crosswalks? Slower speed limits?

The Duluth-Superior Metropolitan Interstate Council wants to take your feedback into account as they work on their Duluth-Superior Metropolitan Pedestrian Plan.

They're working with a variety of entities, including the City of Duluth,  We Walk in Duluth,  Bicycle-Pedestrian Advisory Committee, and St. Louis County.

But they want to know how they can make the pedestrian part of our area's transportation system work better - and get folks walking to their destinations as part of their daily routine. 

You can take the survey here.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
