Community asked to weigh-in on proposed bike share program

Health UP, a new community health initiative and partnership in the Forest Lake Area, is exploring a new bike share program. If there is interest by area residents, Health UP will continue to research and secure funding to put two to three bike docking stations and 14 to 21 bicycles near the Hardwood Creek Trail. Proposed locations include the Forest Lake Library/YMCA location south of Forest Lake, Lakeside Park in downtown Forest Lake, and possibly Fairview Lakes Medical Center in Wyoming.

Users would be able rent a bike and return it at any docking station locations. For example, a bike could be rented in Forest Lake and ridden to the YMCA/Library, put on the docking station at the Library/YMCA, then rented again and returned to Forest Lake or Wyoming.

Community input is requested via a survey that can be taken at www.surveymonkey.com/r/BikeShareProgramSurvey
