New Website Helps Create Walkable Communities

A new website, Walksteps.org, provides communities tactics for creating walkable communities.

Walksteps.org, a new website created by America Walks and Sam Schwartz Engineering (SSE), gives communities large and small both tactics and case studies they can use to make their communities more pedestrian-friendly.  In this interview on Transportation Radio, Laura MacNeil of SSE discusses the site and explains a few of the steps urban, suburban and rural communities can take to improve walkability.

The information provided on the website is also available in pdf and hardcopy formats, and is "the basis for webinars, trainings, and walkshops™ to help put innovative, multidisciplinary pro-walking tactics in the hands of citizens, planners, and engineers."
