Smart Growth Network to Host Webinar on Benefits of Walkable/Bikeable Town Centers

The Smart Growth Network will be sponsoring a webinar entitled The Economic and Fiscal Benefits of Walkable, Bikeable City and Town Centers on Friday, October 30 at 2:00 p.m. EST. The program will feature the experiences of 8 U.S. cities in creating or increasing the walkability and bicycle-friendliness of their downtown areas. The cities profiled include small towns (Grandview, MO and West Jefferson, NC); medium-sized cities (Orlando, FL, Redmond, WA and Lancaster, CA) and large cities (the Bronx in NYC, Cleveland, OH, and Charlotte, NC).
