On the Road (and Sidewalk, Bikeway, and Trail) to a Healthier Clark County

Don’t miss this chance to hear pedestrian guru Mark Fenton “walk” the talk in Vancouver this November! TCC is co-sponsoring a forum On the Road (and Sidewalk, Bikeway, and Trail) to a Healthier Clark County with Community Choices featuring Mark Fenton, nationally known transportation, community development, and health expert for a forum on November 17th, 11:00-1:00. In 2007 Mark helped introduce the issue of walkable communities to Clark County. Two years later, it is time to take this idea to the next level.

Did you know there's a movement afoot to...

* Connect decisions about transportation, community design, and development to the health of Clark County and its residents?
* Have a conversation about these decisions that involves you, your family, friends, clients, and colleagues?
* Show how building healthy communities is the key to a sustainable future?

Who should attend? Those who will find this forum valuable include engineers, architects, community planners, transportation planners, public safety officials, educators, community group leaders, employers, developers, public health professionals, and citizens.
