Connex installed two new welcome signs in Mound Park. One sign is located near the pickleball and tennis courts along 17th Street. The other is located along Hutchins Street near the donor plaza that was installed in 2019 by Connex. If you haven’t take a walk along the activity path through Mound Park, plan one. Mound Park is home to the last remaining earthworks in the area and some of the largest trees in the City. The welcome signs were fabricated by Falcon Fabrication in Minford Ohio. The funding to purchase the signs was raised by Connex and supplemented with 2020 Hotel/Motel grant funding.
Tony Desnick, Director for Development and New Projects with Nice Ride Minnesota, makes the case that bikes are saving the world from itself. Bicycles really do change you and, in amazing ways, change the community around you. Watch the TED talk on Youtube at this link: https://youtu.be/KTT7i3SKpMQ
