Planning, Policy, and Funding
My city will achieve the goals of the 10-Minute Walk campaign by creating equitable citywide policies that support achievement of the 10-Minute Walk Campaign and establishing and analyzing baseline metrics for 10-minute walk park access and quality, ensuring that data and analysis includes under-represented populations. We will measure this by monitoring attendance of cultural programming and passage of policy by city council. By June 2020, we will achieve this commitment.
My city will achieve the goals of the 10-Minute Walk campaign by improving streets, sidewalks, trails, and other infrastructure to ensure safe connections to parks and to address barriers to access and use. We will measure this by tracking that 100 miles of new trails and sidewalk are built through our newly funded transportation bond. By October 2021, we will achieve this commitment.
