Hennepin County has hired a Minnesota native working for the New York City Department of Transportation as its first bicycle and pedestrian coordinator.

Kelley Yemen, a White Bear Lake High School graduate, starts in her new position Feb. 10. Yemen will be tasked with coordinating the work of putting Hennepin County’s bicycle and pedestrian plans into action.
