Walk-Friendly Communities program & resources - is YOUR city working for WFC status? | MARC

Headlines are quick hits from media outlets from Missouri and around the world. Follow the headline link for the full story. The source of this headline says:

Walk Friendly Communities is a national program that recognizes communities that show commitment to improving walkability and pedestrian safety with a comprehensive set of programs, plans and policies. The program can award different levels of recognition: Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum.

On June 2 and 3, 2015, program facilitators from the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center, the administrators of the Walk Friendly Communities program, presented two days of training for local entities interested in becoming Walk Friendly Communities.

MoBikefed comment: We would like to see far more communities from all around Missouri participate in the excellent Walk Friendly Communities program.

The Mid-America Regional Council (Kansas City area) is working with a number of local partners to promote city participation in the Walk Friendly Community program throughout the KC area. Several cities are planning to work together on this and apply for the designation together.

We are hoping this will encourage many more communities all around Missouri to become involved in this excellent national program and work towards recognized Walk Friendly Community status
