Strategies to Enhance Walking and Bicycling in Your Community

The Hill School Center for the Arts, 766 Beech Street, Pottstown, PA 19464
Walking and bicycling are a critical part of our quality of life and contribute to improved health outcomes. As our communities strive to make it easier for their residents to get around in safe, affordable, and equitable ways, how can they plan for these networks and encourage their residents to “get out and go?” This free event will feature guest presentations on successful local projects and give municipal staff, elected and appointed officials, and local advocates some practical and cost-effective tools to add sidewalks, bicycle lanes, and other infrastructure improvements. Join us before the presentations, which begin at 5:30 p.m., for a close-up look at some recent (and award- winning) pedestrian and bicycling improvements.
This event is being provided as part of Planning Smarter Montco 2022, a Montgomery County initiative by MCPC that offers planning education and outreach and corresponds to the Connected Communities theme contained in Montco 2040: A Shared Vision, Montgomery County’s nationally awarded comprehensive plan.
