Creating Pedestrian-Friendly Streets: A Short Walk Through Legal and Practical Issues

If you're interested in more resources for planning pedestrian-friendly communities, see our related page.
 

Meeting Description:
How can we make streets more walkable? And how can communities address legal issues that may emerge, especially around liability?

Join us for this webinar on key practical and legal considerations involved in creating pedestrian-friendly streets. You’ll also learn about policy tools that can make walkable streets the default in your community, including our new directory filled with examples of codes from communities across the country that make streets safer and more comfortable for pedestrians.

We’ll be joined by Scott Bricker from America Walks, who will offer success stories, challenges, and tips from communities nationwide. He’ll also present data from a recent national survey on walking habits and talk about how this information can be used in advocacy campaigns.
