2003 Walkability Workshop

2003 "Wonderful Walkable Communities" Workshop
Albuquerque: March 24-25, 2003

LA Walks, the Los Alamos Walkability Advocacy Group, is funded by a federal grant for improved pedestrian safety, administered by the Center for Injury Prevention (CIPRE) at the University of New Mexico Department of Emergency Medicine. Each year CIPRE holds a workshop at which walkability advocacy groups from around New Mexico gather to share experiences and learn more about successful programs. This year's workshop featured training on ADA compliance from a noted consultant, several presentations on improved pedestrian safety for school children, and an update on New Mexico pedestrian injury and fatality statistics. The workshop was attended by Betsy Lucido and Dave Collins from Los Alamos.
