City Planning For Pedestrians

Walking is the oldest and most important form of transportation. It is the primary way that neighbors and relative can see each other to build  strong communities. In 2009, the city of Seattle developed a cross walkers master plan and made it the most walkable city in the nation. In  2003,  the Kansas City Planning and Development Department created the Walkability Plan to improve pedestrian crosswalks.  Kansas City’s crosswalks are unique because they include directness, continuity, street crossings, visual interest,  amenities, and security.
