Necessary Elements for Safe, Walkable Streets
Activity Code: S480
Date: Sunday, April 14
Communities interested in becoming more walkable often focus on engineering projects, such as building sidewalks and reducing traffic speeds. And while these are important in supporting pedestrian activity, there are a number of other elements—including crime, snow removal, and vacant properties—that impact an individual’s decision to travel by foot. Learn how municipalities across the country are successfully addressing these issues and making their streets more pedestrian-friendly.
