Creating a pedestrian-friendly community often means tackling the challenges to walking from several different angles at the same time. To address that reality, Sam Schwartz Engineering and America Walks teamed up to create the guide Steps to a Walkable Community. This resource features tactics and case studies in multiple disciplines and integrates them with other emerging ideas. This guide is available in multiple formats (website, pdf, and hardcopy) and is also the basis for webinars, trainings, and walkshops™ to help put innovative, multidisciplinary pro-walking tactics in the hands of citizens, planners, and engineers.
