Walkable cities prioritize people over roads

  • Date: 04/10/2023

A walkable city prioritizes people over roads and parking lots by ensuring they can safely access everything they need without a motorized vehicle, said Ross Gavin, director of urban land use, infrastructure and transportation at the Michigan Environmental Council.

Affordable, high-density neighborhoods, mixed-use development and support for multiple forms of transportation, such as walking, scooters, bikes and public transit improve walkability, Gavin said.

Transportation produces a lot of pollution, Gavin said. “Reducing our dependence on single-occupancy vehicles is essential for reducing our carbon footprint.” https://www.manisteenews.com/news/article/michigan-walkable-cities-prioritize-people-roads-17888655.php
