ST. CLOUD -- The Public Health Departments of Benton, Sherburne, Stearns and Wright Counties want your opinion on what would make it easier for you to bike or walk around the counties.

The Statewide Health Improvement Program(SHIP) is developing a Regional Active Transportation Plan to make it easier for you to bike or walk to work or other destinations, or just for fun.

The goal is to increase the amount of walking and biking for people of all ages and abilities and make active transportation a part of your daily routine within the four-county region.

Comments and recommendations from you will help the program identify key destinations, priority routes and will help guide future improvements for walking and biking.

If you want to give your opinion you can complete a survey, give feeback via the interactive map, or get more information by visiting
