New website helps communities become walk-friendly
Growing out of the guide book, "Steps to a Walkable Community," which we wrote about in a previous post, America Walks and Sam Schwartz Engineering have created a new website, www.walksteps.org. The website is an "online resource for developing strategies toward walkable communities," with tactics and case studies that communities can use to help them in their efforts to become more walk-friendly. The website allows users to create and share specific tactics in a "My Tactics" page. The tactics are organized under the following six categories:
- Land Use
- Design and Engineering
- Encouragement and Education
