Walkable Community Workshop

On July 29, 2020 a virtual workshop was held where participants learned to identify safety concerns for pedestrians and discussed possible solutions. Suggestions made during the workshop, as well as any additional comments received by the August 13 deadline, will be compiled into a final report with recommendations to make walking a safer and more attractive option for residents of all ages and abilities. Interested parties are encouraged to view the workshop recording, download and complete the walk audit form, and provide comment.
