Webinar: The Economic and Fiscal Benefits of Walkable and Bike-able City and Town Centers

Primary tabs

The webinar will feature the experiences of eight U S. cities and towns in creating or increasing the walkability and bicycle-friendliness of their downtown areas. The cities and towns profiled include small towns (Grandview, MO and West Jefferson, NC), medium-sized cities and towns (Orlando, FL, Redmond, WA and Lancaster, CA) and large cities and towns (the Bronx in NYC, Cleveland, OH and Charlotte, NC). The webinar will focus on the implementation strategies, the resulting increases in walkability and bike-friendliness, and the economic and fiscal benefits of each project.
