Health by Design, a coalition dedicated to promoting spaces that encourage healthy living, has developed and started to implement a strategy aimed at making Indianapolis in Marion County (Indiana) safer and more accessible for pedestrians. To do this, the coalition launched Walkways: Moving Indy Forward, an initiative to make Indianapolis more walkable and to get more people walking. We want Indianapolis to be safer, more accessible and inviting for people to walk, or roll, for those who use wheelchairs or other mobility devices. Every resident and visitor should be safe and comfortable in our public rights of way. That’s why WalkWays has created a comprehensive pedestrian program for Marion County and developed a pedestrian master plan that will help promote community walkability and walking.
