Feet First Encourages Residents to Take an Active Role in Making Issaquah more Walkable
Issaquah, WA– Feet First will be holding training sessions for its Neighborhood Walking Ambassador program in Issaquah on Wednesday July 10th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Ambassadors will have the chance to lead neighbors and friends on fun, community-focused walks around Issaquah in the coming months. Residents are encouraged to apply for the training online. More information will be provided to successful applicants after completion of the survey.
Feet First has been working with the city of Issaquah to improve the city’s walkability. Director of the Issaquah Office of Sustainability, David Fujimoto said, “The City is interested in highlighting walking as part of creating a healthy place to live, and encouraging people who are excited about that mission to become Walking Ambassadors for Issaquah.”
Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors will play a key role in inspiring a shift to foot-friendly development in Issaquah by sharing observations and recommendations, which will be directly communicated to city officials through a draft plan due out in September. The neighborhood walks help motivate people who live, work and play in Issaquah to walk more. Walks and training sessions are educational and fun social events.
