In my world I can safely walk everywhere.

That video cracks me up!

I’m seriously considering lobbying for more sidewalks in my community. There are 2 major roads I know of that are not safe to walk on, yet are popular with pedestrians. My representative is against widening the road to make accommodations. At least that’s the answer I’ve been getting when inquiring.

I’m excited to have found Pedestrains.org for guidance.

Is your community pedestrian friendly?

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Yes, it is! As a matter of fact, my community (Lee’s Summit, MO – pop. approx 90,000) is working toward making it even more walk/bike friendly. If you check out Livable Streets Lee’s Summit, you will see a good example of a community working toward being pedestrian friendly. Their mission:

    Livable Streets Lee’s Summit is part of the Lee’s Summit 360 Strategic Planning Initiative. If you would like to see Lee’s Summit:

    – Become a more vibrant community
    – Improve its sidewalks and streets
    – Be pedestrian and bicycle friendly
    – Have more trails
    – Plan for future transportation
    – Plan for beautification

    Check out the National Complete Streets Coalition for more good information as well. Maybe your community will hop on board!
