NORTH MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - North Mankato residents are encouraged to provide input on the city’s preparation for Electric and autonomous vehicles.

City staff says they hope to gauge the perception of the vehicle technology and its impact on existing infrastructure.

”We don’t know how quickly those e-scooters and e-bikes are going to come down the hill. We are sort of gauging interest right now with our survey and our study. We are gauging interest around the community, who will be purchasing electric vehicles in the near term, who is excited about them, what are the opposition to them,” North Mankato City Planner Matthew Lassonde said.

Residents can find the survey here or visit North Mankato City Hall for a paper copy.

The survey window is open now through Wednesday, April 27.
