The webinar, entitled “Improving Livability and Boosting the Economy with Walkable Wyoming Downtowns” presented useful information on how developing walkable downtowns can improve the quality of life and economic prospects of Wyoming communities and their residents. If you missed it, you can view the webinar presentation and slide deck below. And remember that there is still one more webinar to attend in two weeks.

Improving Livability and Boosting the Economy with Walkable Wyoming Downtowns
One key ingredient of vibrant and successful downtowns is walkability. Walkable downtowns provide space for walking, sidewalk dining and street furniture, street trees and landscaping, lighting, and safe and comfortable crossings. Learn about how Wyoming communities can prioritize walkability in their downtowns and on their main streets.

Developing Bicycle Route Networks for Active Wyoming Communities
Rural, low-volume roadways can serve as bicycle routes to provide opportunities for recreational bicycling. Learn how communities can take advantage of their existing roadways to establish bicycle routes by installing wayfinding, producing maps, and using technology to help recreational bicyclists explore the Wyoming landscape.
Presented by Joel Shaffer, EIT, Engineer, Toole Design
We sincerely hope that you will you attend this webinar series and hope that you will encourage others to do so, as well. We believe that the more people who are made aware of the wide-ranging benefits that can accrue to Wyoming communities from promoting active transportation initiatives the sooner these communities and their residents can realize those benefits.
