CASHS Makes Active Transportation a Reality in Rural Minnesota

This presentation is part of the Walking and Walkability in Rural Communities panel.

Rural communities have a reputation for being auto-centric and New Ulm, MN, is no exception. However, within just two years a cross-sector coalition has changed how the entire community views active transportation while making physical and cultural changes that will be sustained for years to come. This poster documents how New Ulm’s Coalition for Safe, Active, and Healthy Streets (CASHS) came to be and the sustainable impact it has made in the community and share lessons learned along the way.
