Denver Reaches For National Distinction

by Jill Locantore on January 8, 2014

Dear Friends,

On December 14th, the team including WalkDenver, Denver Public Works and the Office of City Council District One, submitted an application to Walk Friendly Communities (WFC), an organization which recognizes communities that “are working to improve a wide range of conditions related to walking, including safety, mobility, access and comfort.”

The application was the result of many city staff hours and tireless volunteer efforts. The Denver Community Planning and Development Department, Office of Sustainability, Office of Environmental Health, and the Denver Police Department all deserve a special thanks for their assistance.

The fact that the City and County of Denver dedicated time to this application bodes well for the future of walkability in Denver. A WFC rating will validate existing efforts to improve pedestrian safety and infrastructure, and encourage further development in those areas.

We hope to further build our relationship in 2014 with the City and County in the future to make Denver the most Walkable city in America. Keep an eye out for an announcement regarding Denver’s ranking!
