Chicago earns Gold Level “Walk Friendly” status
The Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC) announced new Walk Friendly Communities (WFC) in 10 locations across the nation. The three Gold Level communities were: Chicago, Minneapolis, and San Francisco. Three more communities were given Silver Level status, and four were awarded Bronze Level.
The “Walk Friendly” title recognizes a city or town for their success in working to improve a wide range of conditions related to walking -- including safety, mobility, access, and comfort.
