Local Groups & Committees
All across Vermont, there are many communities, committees, advocacy groups and people who want to see more, better and safer options for walking and biking in their communities.
Vermont is local. So is Local Motion. Our goal is to give people in communities across Vermont the tools and the support they need to make their communities great places to walk and bike. Find your county or your town on the map, then dive in! You'll find updates on local projects, a listing of community events, a community-specific suggestion box, and more. Sign up on your own community's page, and we'll help you make it even better.
Local Motion can assist and mentor your community by setting up a local walk-bike advisory committee. Much like a town energy committee, a walk-bike committee plays a key role in raising awareness about walking and biking, prioritizing walk/bike issues and projects for local decision-makers, and engaging community groups and other interested citizens in promoting positive change.
Local Motion partners with local walk/bike committees across Vermont to help them set goals, plan projects, organize community support, and more. We are always looking for ways to work with more groups, if you are involved in or know of a walk-bike group that may be interested in working with us, please email Local Motion's Program Manager, Jonathon Weber.
