We can feel Fall in the air in Phoenix and perfect weather bragging rights is on the horizon. Given that, we’re doing a Special Wednesday, November 1st Networking Event to enjoy all the things we love about the outdoors. Our organizations focus on creating more walkable and enjoyable experiences in our communities and this month provides a great opportunity.

We are honored to have Brian Fellows, a Senior Transportation Planner with AMEC Foster Wheeler, conduct an abbreviated walkability tour. His areas of expertise include school transportation safety, sustainable transportation, mobility/accessibility/ADA, sustainable communities, and quantitative assessment of the health effects of the built environment. Brian is passionate about pedestrian and bicycle safety as reflected in his commitment in biking or walking to work four days a week.

This unique Walkability Tour experience will give an overview of what makes our urban environment not just ADA compliant, but creates a setting where we want to travel. We can create social connections while providing a healthier overall community. Brian will bring his insight, methodology, and best practices in this interactive experience.

***WE ARE USING A DIFFERENT FORMAT FOR THIS SPECIAL EVENT***

Normally we would meet in the Valley Metro Conference Room but this time we will be meeting in the first floor lobby and beginning the physical walk at 7:30 sharp. Please wear walking shoes and we intend to complete this tour by our usual 8:30. Hopefully you can join us and we look forward to seeing all of you there.
