First ever Indiana Walk Summit, August 27-28!

Step up, Indiana, and register to attend the first-ever Indiana Walk Summit, taking place August 27-28 at the Marten House Hotel and Lilly Conference Center in Indianapolis.

The conference will share examples from around the state and nation of best practices, model policies, and tools and resources that will help all Hoosier communities, regardless of size or setting, create safer and more accessible pedestrian environments.

Walkable communities are healthy and thriving. They help make a place great – somewhere people choose to live, desire to visit and are willing to spend time and money.

Safe, accessible and convenient pedestrian experiences are critical in ensuring that people of all ages and abilities have mobility options.

And the growing body of evidence is clear: walkable places are also economically vibrant.

The summit will consist of workshops on the afternoon of Wednesday, August 27 ($25), and a full-day conference on Thursday, August 28 ($85). People are welcome to attend one or both days.

The event website has all of the pertinent details, including a promotional flyer, an updated program overview, continuing education info (expected to include AICP, CHES/MCHES, LACES & PDH), the list of sponsors and more. Sign up now!
