I feel like the project needs more review before they consider going further with it. Only a hand full of people will use bike path and it affects everyone living along the path. More cars will be parked on either sides of the street and there are other issues like mail delivery, street clean up that need to be look in to.

Why shud people be forced to park in their alley, and their company too...Get the GUNS off the streets before you send people on BIKES out there...hopefully it won't slow down emergency vehicles too. And the cars pay a gas tax, what do bikes pay for...people in the hood over forty, the elderly and disabled in my hometown --> tend not to jump on bikes. And as I recall there is already a BIKE PATH near it...just like light rail, another good place to get robbed. Yeah, NO!

This is far from being a greenway! I call this insulting to our community and embarrassing! Get rid of this it's ugly and it's not fair to the residents!

I think this is an unnecessary burden on homeowners and I think it will provide a nicer place for criminals to commit crimes. Parks are for playing. Streets are for driving and parking in front of your house. Sidewalks are for walking. A greenway should be planned in a new development. I think it's fitness enthusiasts who want a greenway so they can travel through our neighborhoods. It costs them nothing. Go cycle on bike paths in parks and along rivers. Leave our front yards and streets alone.

I'm an avid bicyclist, commuting year round, yet I cannot see any benefit from this project to cyclists or other residents of N Mpls. However, the concerns documented by the property owners, dismayed by the irresponsible way the "greenway" has proceeded, have been ignored or scoffed at. Clearly this project needs to be scrapped, so those who live on Irving Ave can regain what has been taken from them - without compensation.

The problems in North Mpls will not be solved with more bike paths.

I do realize what is trying to be done here, however, there is no consideration, compensation or realistic solutions for the problems created by the Green Way project (which is contrary to what was to told to residents effected). I have a house on Irving street and we are seeing a decrease in property value as well an extreme inconvenience to the people living there to access their home. This is a classic case of a feather in our cap for a few and who cares about the burdens place on the property owners.

Restricting access to residents homes and placing these residents in the alleyways is wrong and not safe. This is an unnecessary venture with negative impact on our neighborhood!

This project was poorly planned and executed. Calling it a Greenway is ridiculous! Truly an eyesore. What exactly ARE it's benefits?

I am signing this petition because I don’t believe it is right to take away street access to the homes along this greenway. While I understand the thought of trying to connect parks through a greenway, I do not think that closing off residential streets is the way to do that. In addition, with the rampant violent crime that has been escalating all over North Minneapolis, it would be much more sensible to first make the existing parks and greenways safer for the public to use. Every day I hear of multiple crimes targeting pedestrians, bicyclists, park patrons or those waiting to use public transportation. Many of these crimes involve weapons. With the crime rate so high right now, I feel the greenway just provides one more source of potential victims while at the same time potentially hindering emergency services from aiding victims swiftly.
