The Walkable Washington program grew out of the Feet First Cities Program. It showcases exceptional pedestrian-oriented improvements, community groups and outreach programs; maintains a statewide network for key contacts and stakeholders including an annual symposium; and provides assistance with Safe Routes to School, walking audits and other educational activities and programs.
The first Walkable Washington Symposium will be held on Thursday, April 3, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm; in preparation for that event we will be highlighting projects around Washington which have enhanced walkability.
Stevenson Wayfinding Master Plan
First drafted in 2012, the Stevenson Wayfinding Master Plan provides a comprehensive set of guidelines to update and unify signage and navigational aids within the city. The new signage includes artistic elements which reflect the character, history and beauty of the 1,500-resident community and the surrounding Columbia River Gorge and Gifford Pinchot National Forest. In addition, pedestrian wayfinding pavement markers and stonework make it easier for walkers to get around while reducing sign clutter and maintenance costs for the City.
