Inaugural Walk Friendly Communities announced and next round begins
The Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC) has announced 11 inaugural Walk Friendly Communities(WFC). Walk Friendly Communities is a national recognition program -- modeled on the League of American Bicyclists’ Bike Friendly Communities -- to encourage towns and cities across the U.S. to establish, or recommit to, a high priority for safe walking.
After evaluating applicant communities in several categories related to walking, including safety, mobility, access, and comfort, PBIC recognized 11 communities for their commitment to improving walkability and pedestrian safety.
The next round of applications has begun. To apply, see “How to get started.”
