Event description

Description

The first 30 individuals to register for the event will receive a FREE copy of Jeff Speck's new book "Walkable City Rules: 101 Steps to Making Better Places." You must be in attendance on August 28th to receive your copy of the book. ** If you already own one of Jeff’s books, feel free to bring it with you to get signed. **


Imagine a community where work, shops, schools, libraries, and churches are all within walking distance. Creating a walkable community is more complex than just crosswalks or sidewalks. According to world-renowned city planner and urban designer Jeff Speck, the walk must be simultaneously useful, safe, comfortable, and interesting.

Join us for a keynote lunch and interactive workshop with Jeff Speck to learn more about national best--and worst--practices in the movement toward making America's neighborhoods and downtowns more welcoming to people on foot and bicycle.

If you are a health professional, city or government leader, developer, planner, or simply interested in making your neighborhood more walkable you won't want to miss this event.
