Walking is the most primitive form of transportation.  Perhaps that’s why those who choose to do it are often assigned the lowest priority by community planners. But, when a car is required to get around, where does that leave folks who can’t afford or choose not to use one?

The Atlantic Cities has recently published an excellent piece, “America is a Walking Disaster,” which delves into the problems with car-centric thinking.  Please give it a read by following the link below and then come to our first Friends of White Flint Happy Hour to share your thoughts on how we can do better here.
