Walkable Communities and Public Health Webinar

Join the Maryland Department of Planning and the Smart Growth Network for a free webinar that discusses street design tools and techniques that promote walkability and public health.

The COVID-19 crisis has made many rethink the way public streets are utilized. Cities have begun closing down streets to vehicles and opening them up for pedestrian foot traffic, outdoor dining, and recreational use.
