Recognizing Don Pflaum

Whereas Don Pflaum recently concluded employment as a Transportation Planner at the City of Minneapolis after 19 years of service, and

-whereas Don played a significant role in developing and planning Minneapolis bicycle facilities and infrastructure, and

-whereas Don chaired and staffed the Minneapolis Bicycle Advisory Committee from 2001 to 2010, and 

-whereas Don’s contributions included a wide variety of program and project management, transportation planning, regional transit projects, and community engagement, and

-whereas Don was the project manager and primary author for the 2011 Minneapolis Bicycle Master Plan and the Bicycle Facility Design Guide, and

-whereas Don’s work led to the installation of a significant number of miles of bicycle lanes, trails, and helped build one of the best bicycling cities in the country, and

-whereas some of Don’s major projects include: 

Cedar Lake Trail

Midtown Greenway

Hiawatha LRT Trail

18th Ave NE Bikeway

Loring Bikeway Bridge

Martin Olav Sabo Bridge

Midtown Greenway Bicycle Center

NE Diagonal Trail

River Lake Greenway

And many more bikeway projects and reconstruction projects, and

-whereas Don’s straightforward, honest communication and friendship will be deeply missed,

now, therefore, be it resolved that the Minneapolis Bicycle Advisory Committee wishes to thank Don for 19 years of service and his outstanding contributions to bicycling in Minneapolis.
