Lawrence earns Silver Walk Friendly Communities designation


Congrats to the City of Lawrence for receiving a Silver designation from the national Walk Friendly Communities program. 

Scores range from Bronze (lowest), Silver, Gold to Platinum (highest). The Walk Friendly designation is based on community efforts to expand opportunities for walking and to improve pedestrian safety across a wide range of programs and activities, from planning and design to outreach and law enforcement. 

This was the city’s first application to the Walk Friendly Communities program, but for several years, Lawrence has received Bronze level designation from the League of American Bicyclists Bicycle Friendly Community program.
