Let Your Walking Needs Be Known
Transportation accounts for approximately 26% of Duluth’s greenhouse gas emissions. To reduce those emissions, we need to prioritize street design and modes of transportation that put people first like walking.
More and more adults include walking as part of a physically active lifestyle. But we also walk as a form of public transportation. Duluth can improve spaces and increase safe places to walk by supporting Complete Streets policies. Complete Streets is an approach to transportation design and policy that makes streets safe for all users including pedestrians, transit riders, bicyclists, and motorists. Complete Streets designs vary by location, but often include sidewalks, bike lanes, roundabouts, curb extensions, and more.
Contact your city leaders to ask them to support street design that supports walking. Add to the letter below the particular places in town that you would like to see improved walking conditions.
