Vermont has some very walkable communities - especially downtowns and village centers that were built for walking. Walkability should also be a priority for new development as well. It's integral to continued sustainability and success that our communities continue to be walkable -- for people aging in place, for families and children and for our health and safety and economic vitality.
We hope you will take a look at the choices and attend the webinars that look interesting and that will build your capacity to help your community be walkable! Then let us know how Local Motion can help get you there!
