There are two petitions circulating online about the section of the proposed Border to Border (B2B) Touring Route that is proposed in Cook County and across northern Minnesota. One petition is in support of the touring route, the other is opposed to the B2B.

WTIP’s Joe Friedrichs spoke with Cook County resident Scott Benolken, who supports the B2B route. Friedrichs also spoke with local resident Denny Fitzpatrick, who does not support the B2B route in Cook County.

The touring route will be discussed during a meeting of the Cook County Board of Commissioners in their committee of the whole format June 19 starting at 5 p.m. The meeting will take place in the commissioners’ room at the Cook County Courthouse. The petitions, both for and against the B2B, are expected to be presented to the county board during that meeting.
