I'd just like to say that I've seen separated bike lanes in other cities and they are the way to go. Sure, sometimes cars park a bit in the lane, but it is a heck of a lot safer than being right next to cars.

Once you get over the hills, Duluth is actually quite good for biking (Lakewalk, Munger Trail, etc).

Would love to go to the meeting but can't. 

As a year-round walker, not much will improve until we a) have better weather control or b) actually enforce sidewalk clearing ordinances.

The area around UMD, with hundreds of pedestrians walking neighborhood sidewalks everyday, is potentially deadly due to snow-covered and slippery sidewalks (rental properties?) which forces peds to walk in the streets. In addition, crosswalk placement makes no sense and lack of sidewalks in many spots is senseless.
