Next City reporting on the city of Milwaukee says that its “efforts to make the city more bike and pedestrian–friendly are paying off.” One way they are seeing the results in on more people “moseying around” the neighborhood and more outdoor seating at restaurants. Part of the city’s efforts included rebuilding certain areas with wider sidewalks and adding bike racks. They’ve also added “traffic-calming measures” which slows motorists down. An advocacy group called MilWalkee Walks found that pedestrian deaths have been increasing, especially in low income areas. As Neighborhoods to Trails advocate for hike and bike paths, we must explore what other communities have successfully done to improve walkability and bicycling safety, especially as we look to get our residents across dangerous intersections in southwest Houston.
