AIAWS | February Section Lunch
February 16, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Matthew Burczyk, Winston-Salem’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Coordinator, will join us to speak about the new Pedestrian Master Plan right here in Downtown Winston-Salem!
With an ever present focus on health and vitality in these challenging times, the benefits of walking have never been more important. Furthermore, a walkable city not only improves the physical and mental health of its citizens, it also reduces inequality, increases active use of space, makes cities more beautiful, activates the street façade, and attracts skilled professionals who tend to migrate to walkable areas.
Winston- Salem has been studying these benefits and the many other positive effects of walkability and has developed a plan to prioritize, fund, and implement high-quality pedestrian infrastructure and supportive programs and policies for walking.
Check your emails for the registration link! The first 30 people who register by 5 pm today will receive a virtual gift card for a lunch of your choice, on us!
