Walkable neighborhoods are good for everyone.

Get some fresh air, and get to know your neighbors, too! Walkable neighborhoods are safer, encourage physical activity, and get people connected with one another! Businesses are more likely to invest in your neighborhood. We support increasing walkable neighborhoods through funding and technical help.

Walkable neighborhoods:

  • Feel safe and clean.
  • Include plants, street furniture and lighting.
  • Have quality paths or sidewalks.
  • Make it easy to walk to neighborhood destinations and public transportation.
  • Promote healthy people.
