Lee’s Summit gets Walk Friendly Community Designation

Downtown Lee's SummitCongratulations to Lee’s Summit for achieving the Bronze Level Walk Friendly Community Award! Much like the Bicycle Friendly Community Award, this new designation recognizes cities that provide safe, comfortable, and accessible facilities and polices for walking.

Lee’s Summit has one of the metro’s most vibrant and pedestrian-friendly suburban downtowns, with a mix of shopping, housing, and businesses. The city has become a leader in the metro area with a growing trail system, the region’s first Complete Streets policy, and now the first Walk Friendly Community award.

The Lee’s Summit Journal has more.
