Pedestrian planning support available

New opportunity through America Walks
Protecting pedestrians from traffic injuries and deaths requires a multi-pronged approach: knowledge of safe systems, community engagement, political buy-in, the coordinated work of many stakeholders and a pedestrian safety plan.

America Walks is partnering with the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center to implement a collaborative learning program for 10 mid-sized cities (50,000-250,000 population).

Each community chosen will receive small group, web-based training and discussion on how to leverage and build capacity for developing and implementing a pedestrian safety plan and a $1,500 stipend to offset some of the cost of participating in the program and support implementation efforts.
