Non Urban Networks: Active Transportation in Rural America

May 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EDT

Small communities across the US are working to support active transportation as hard as their counterparts in urban centers. But they often lack the resources of their urban counterparts, and are rarely the focus of active transportation narratives. This webinar focuses on rural active transport by bringing together planners to discuss challenges and opportunities in small towns throughout California, Utah and Vermont. Moderated by Dubois & King, a Vermont based consulting firm, attendees will hear how engagement and dedicated vision are building the backbone of walkable and bikeable communities in Mariposa County, CA. We’ll learn how dedication to active transport is enabling a town in Utah to develop an active transport plan centered on equity. The webinar will illustrate how Fairlee, VT leveraged tactical urbanism and passionate volunteers to build a better village center. More information.
