Walkable communities support a holistic approach to town and city planning and focus on people and how to create environments that encourage walking, biking and the use of public transporttaion. To be successful, a intergated group of people including elected leaders, city staff, activists, students, seniors, professionals and the business community should be involved.
Think how much cleaner our cities would be if we could walk, and bike, to our favorite shops and restaurants and leave our car behind when we run errands? We’d all be healthier and our cities and towns would be more livable, sustainable and socially welcoming places.
