Walkable Communities Have Happier People

While we are awaiting the results on our application to be recognized as a Walking Friendly Community, a new study illustrates why it is so important for us to continue our push to make our community even more pedestrian friendly.  The new study reveals that residents of walkable communities are more likely to be socially engaged and trusting than people in less walkable areas. They also reported being in good health and happy more often than their counterparts.
