In 2008, Oklahoma City was named the least walkable city in the United States by a national magazine.  Mayor Mick Cornett responded by commissioning a walkability study, a project that led to a transformation of 40 blocks of downtown streets.

Join the Maryland Department of Planning and the Smart Growth Network at 2 p.m. Thursday, April 29, as Jeff Speck, one the nation’s leading pedestrian experts, explains his approach in Oklahoma City and other communities, how walkability studies are conducted, and how local planners can work with neighborhoods, business groups and citizens to complete similar studies of their own.
