Here is a great note I recieved (shared with permission)
Hello Mr Wojcik,I want to thank you for your recent support of Complete Streets and ensuring Rochester mainatins equitable access to walking and biking infrastructure. I just wanted to share my note to my council member and two resources you may already know about, but could be helpful for future council discussion.This is a list of over 30 cities and counties that have followed Rochesters lead by passingComplete Streets policies AND implementing them! https://www.dot.state.mn.us/planning/completestreets/examples.htmlThis video was developed because communities were wondering how to replicate Rochesters policy. How unfortunate that now we are not living up the reputation of being leaders. https://www.youtube.com/watch?

We cannot just bend to the wills of business leaders whenever it impacts their pocketbooks, thats why we have elected officials like you to ensure equity.Thank you for your time,Kelly Corbin
