Ideas And Inspirations From Walk Friendly Communities

The Walk Friendly Communities initiative, a national recognition program that encourages cities and towns across the United States to prioritize walkability, just released its inaugural program guide. Entitled “Giving Cities Legs: Ideas and Inspirations from Walk FriendlyGiving Cities Legs Book Communities“ (PDF, 3.8 MB) and published by the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center, the guide showcases some of the best practices of Walk Friendly Communities like Arlington so that other communities can learn from our experiences.

Take a look, see how our Gold-Level Walk Friendly Community compares to other cities that have received this prestigious recognition, and draw inspiration from the impressive examples of how communities nationwide are walking the walk toward walkability for all!
