Walk Friendly Communities
Sept. 2011... Contragutulations to Lee's Summit for being the first metro city to get this national recognition!
Our vision for the future of Kansas City includes the majority of metro residents living in cities officially designated as Walk Friendly Communities. This program communities' commitment to walking through the presence of sidewalks, trails, crosswalks, city policies and procedures, walk-friendly laws, and much more.
The Walk Friendly award recognizes cities that go above and beyond to embrace walking. It's a powerful statement to your citizens that walking is a solution to our health, environmental, and transportation problems.
We can help your city become walk friendly with technical assistance for the application, building public support, or convincing your city leaders to apply.
