America Walks is excited to announce the second webinar of it’s free 2016 webinar series. In February’s webinar, America Walks will continue it’s path through resources available to the walking movement by showcasing real-life examples.

A pedestrian plan is an essential first step in the process of creating a walkable community.  By bringing together city residents and elected officials with planning, transportation, and health professionals, the entire community can build a vision for safe, attractive, and walkable neighborhoods and identify specific projects that will realize that vision.  Once the plan is officially adopted, the community is well positioned to receive state and federal grants, and allocate some of its own resources for implementation.  In Kentucky, the state health and transportation agencies have collaborated for several years to develop a “Pedestrian Planning for Communities” training program, leading to 30 local pedestrian plans across the state, which are now in various stages of implementation.
