Walkable Community Workshops Across California in 2004
For the past seven years, Walkable Community Workshops (also called Pedestrian Roadshows) have been presented around the country to help people make their communities better places to live. In just four hours, these sessions have helped groups composed of elected officials, local government staff, practitioners in the field and citizens analyze their situation and identify needed improvements. The results? New traffic calming programs that work; revitalized main streets; better access to transit; more pedestrian-friendly intersections; new, accessible sidewalks; and Safe Routes to School programs. And, most importantly, more people walking, biking and riding public transit!
The California Center for Physical Activity (formerly the California Physical Activity and Health Initiative), a program of the California Department of Health Services, in partnership with Odyssey and through a grant provided by Caltrans, will offer eight Walkable Community Workshops throughout California in 2004. These Workshops will be led by nationally recognized livability expert Charlie Gandy, of Austin, TX.
