New Walk Friendly Communities announced
The Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC) announced three new Walk Friendly Communities (WFC) and the elevation of one (Corvallis, OR) to a higher status level. Among the three new communities is the Village of Forest Park. Congratulations, Forest Park. The WFC program recognize cities or towns for their success in working to improve conditions for walking, over a wide range of factors, including safety, mobility, access, and comfort. PBIC recognizes these four communities for their commitment to improving walkability and pedestrian safety:
New Orleans, Louisiana
Forest Park, Illinois
The City of Chicago was honored with Gold Level Walk Friendly status in 2011.
