Walk Friendly Communities is a national recognition program developed to encourage towns and cities across the U.S. to establish or recommit to a high priority for supporting safer walking environments. The WFC program will recognize communities that are working to improve a wide range of conditions related to walking, including safety, mobility, access, and comfort.

Resources include:

  • Tools to assess the status of walking in your community
  • Information on developing a Pedestrian Safety Action Plan
  • Resources on public education, engineering, enforcement and evaluation

Applications for national recognition will be accepted starting November 1, 2010. Application deadline is December 15, 2010.
