Fort Lauderdale has now been given the title, “A Walk Friendly City”
Fort Lauderdale, Florida – Fort Lauderdale has recently been designated a bronze-level Walk Friendly Community by the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center, which is based out of North Carolina.
The city is the latest to join the walk friendly community, which is a national program recognizing communities for their commitment to pedestrian safety. Fort Lauderdale is one of 4 other Florida cities that have already received this title. There are 65 additional cities nationwide.
To earn the WFC designation, the city’s safety initiatives were evaluated based on the community’s profile, walking status; planning, education and encouragement; engineering, enforcement and evaluation.
As a WFC community, Fort Lauderdale has access to resources, technical assistance and has a baseline to develop and assess future projects. It serves as a leading example for other communities.
Walk Friendly Communities is a national recognition program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration and FedEx.
