What is a Walkable Community Workshop?

A Walkable Community Workshop is an interactive community workshop designed to bring together key stakeholders such as citizens, land owners, elected officials, and professionals to focus on issues related to walkability.  This is part of an effort to make our community more pedestrian friendly.


Who has organized this Workshop?

This workshop is presented by the Wilmington Area Planning Council (WILMAPCO) and coordinated by Town of Townsend.


What will we do at the Workshop?

WILMAPCO staff, trained in conducting Walkable Community Workshops, will serve as facilitators. Workshop participants will learn more about successful pedestrian design, safety, education, enforcement, and encouragement.  A walking audit of this target area will help us understand and identify obstacles to walking for residents and suggest potential short-term and long-term solutions. Please wear comfortable shoes and clothing suitable for the weather that day.  Refreshments will be provided!
