Citizen & School Engagement

Citizen & School Engagement

  • ISSUE:  While walking and biking are broadly recognized as healthful, enjoyable, and environmentally sustainable activities, many Addison County residents walk or bike less than they would like to due to concerns about safety or lack of access to, or knowledge of, opportunities to walk and bike.
  • GOAL: To increase rates of walking and biking across all ages, abilities and communities.  The Council is working to develop creative strategies engaging all demographics within our communities to educate and demonstrate the plethora of health, community, economic, etc. benefits of walking and biking.  We’ll identify performance measures to actively monitor the success of these strategies and the growth of active bicyclists and pedestrians within the region.
