Walk Safely On The LEFT SIDE of the Road
Walk on the LEFT SIDE OF THE ROAD! 

It is the law in Minnesota, and walking on the LEFT side of the road - FACING THE ONCOMING TRAFFIC - is just SAFER!

The quote from this website speaks for itself:  "... Simply walking against traffic instead of with it, cut the risk of getting hit by a car by an average of 77 percent, according to the findings."
 
2020 Minnesota Statutes TRANSPORTATION Chapter 169 Section 169.21 states:

169.21 PEDESTRIAN.
...
Subd. 5. Walk on left side of roadway. Pedestrians when walking or moving in a wheelchair along a roadway shall, when practicable, walk or move on the left side of the roadway or its shoulder giving way to oncoming traffic. Where sidewalks are provided and are accessible and usable it shall be unlawful for any pedestrian to walk or move in a wheelchair along and upon an adjacent roadway.

 


ACC Applications
About the Home Improvement Committees

Purpose: The Architecture Control Committee (ACC) maintains, manages, and recommends changes to the architecture and paint standards set forth in the Birnamwood Homes Association (BHA) founding and governing documents.

ACC versus Homes Maintenance versus Grounds: BHA has three related committees, the ACC, the Grounds Committee, and the Homes Maintenance Committee.  Their descriptions are listed below:
  • Homes Maintenance Committee: Maintaining your home in good repair is not covered with the ACC standards. Homes Maintenance is concerned with ensuring all homes are kept in good repair.  It looks for painting and deterioration of siding, chimneys, and other unit structures.
     
  • Architecture Control Committee: Maintaining your home requires repairs and replacement of various parts of the unit’s exterior.  No structure, building, addition, deck, patio, fence, wall, enclosure, window, exterior door, or any other exterior replacements, improvements, or alterations (visible from the exterior of the unit) are to be started until an application (explained at Application Forms link below) has been submitted and approved by the Architecture Control Committee (and the Board, depending upon the application).
     
  • Grounds Committee Landscaping in front of the unit is not covered with the ACC standards. Landscaping is concerned with the use of the grounds outside the units, such as plants in the ground, rocks, stones, and any other use outside the unit that comes in contact with the ground. This falls under the Grounds Committee.  All information pertaining to landscaping may be requested from the Grounds Committee, and approval of planting and any modifications to the landscaping must be approved by Grounds Committee. (Grounds Committee link below)
ACC Guiding Values: The ACC has adopted a set of values, and will use them in enforcing, evaluating, maintaining, and recommending changes to the standards (Value Statements Page link below).
