Getting Around on Foot Action Plan

Walking is fundamental, but walking is too often taken for granted and neglected. The needs of pedestrians struggle to be heard.  

The Getting Around on Foot Action Plan looks at basic transportation infrastructure needs from various perspectives – conversations with community planners, reviews of community plans, outreach and surveys received from neighborhood associations and individuals, and a first-hand look at eight “Case Study” neighborhoods.
