Walkable communities are thriving, livable, sustainable places that give their residents safe transportation choices and improved quality of life. They are the oldest, and until quite recently, the only towns or cities in the world.
Walkable Communities are designed around the human foot, truly the only template that can lead to sustainability and future community prosperity. Increased walkability also helps improve resource responsibility, safety, physical fitness and social interaction.
Walkable Communities offers a variety of resources to help communities with diverse needs:
We maintain a Walkable Communities Listserv and send regular emails on active communities
The resources on this website are available for non-commercial use and distribution--please share widely!
