Throughout the state, communities are making it easier for people of all ages and abilities to walk, bike or paddle. These changes are supported by good planning to ensure that work on sidewalks, walking trails and bike baths leads to “connectivity” and enhanced accessibility and safety.
The National Park Service Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance Program provides technical assistance to jurisdictions in their local trail and outdoor recreational planning. The NPS is currently accepting applications from communities that seek planning help in 2011. While the deadline for application is August 1, 2011, Alexandra Stone recommends that community representatives contact her to discuss projects well before the deadline.
Examples of NPS supported projects:
James Kissee is the Physical Activity Specialist for the Nutrition and Physical Activity and Obesity Prevention Program for the Washington State Department of Health. Kissee is available for technical assistance for agencies planning to improve physical activity options in their regions.
