About the Walk Summit

Walkable communities are healthy and thriving. They help make a place great – somewhere people choose to live, desire to visit and are willing to spend time and money. Safe, accessible and convenient pedestrian experiences are critical in ensuring that people of all ages and abilities have mobility options. And the growing body of evidence is clear: walkable places are also economically vibrant.

The first Indiana Walk Summit consisted of workshops on the afternoon of Wednesday, August 27, and a full-day conference on Thursday, August 28. We shared examples from around the state and nation of best practices, model policies, and tools and resources that will help all Hoosier communities, regardless of size or setting, create more walkable places.

Presentation materials will be posted soon.
