The Walkable Washington program grew out of the Feet First Cities Program. It showcases exceptional pedestrian-oriented improvements, community groups and outreach programs; maintains a statewide network for key contacts and stakeholders including an annual symposium; and provides assistance with Safe Routes to School, walking audits and other educational activities and programs.
The first Walkable Washington Symposium will be held on Thursday, April 3, 9:00 am 1:00 pm; in preparation for that event we will be highlighting projects around Washington which have enhanced walkability.
White Salmon Safe Routes to School
White Salmon began a Safe Routes to School program in August 2012 to increase school children’s physical activity and to provide a safe environment for students to walk or bike to school. The SRTS program was supported by numerous community partners, including local businesses, the library, the city, the county, and non-profit organizations. Many students and parents actively participated in the SRTS program.
