Brainerd City Council Approves School Variance Request, City Deemed Bicycle Friendly

After Monday's City Council meeting, Brainerd Mayor Ed Menk discussed a new designation the City received.


Brainerd received the bronze designation as a Bicycle Friendly Community from the League of American Bicyclists, joing 28 other cities in Minnesota to be bicycle friendly. The Brainerd Family YMCA also received a designation.

The council approved a variance requst from the Brainerd School District.


The council also dealt with parking issues with BHS for at least a year, and up to two years.


A compromise is being planned for the school parking lot.


Menk also discussed the monument dedication coming up this Sunday on Mill Avenue in Brainerd.



The dedication is set for 1PM.
