LA CES approved?: No

Location(s): US


Walking is an activity that’s part of daily life for many Marylanders and is recognized as a healthy transportation choice. In fact, walking is Maryland’s official state exercise. But with issues of pedestrian safety and access, many communities recognize walking – and improving the walkability of our neighborhoods – are goals that require public attention and action.

Throughout October, working in coordination with several state agencies and other partners, MDOT shared informational resources and a series of free webinars – or Walkinars – that are open to all. The month also included Walk Maryland Day on October 6, a celebration that encourages all Marylanders to step out to enjoy walking or some other form of physical activity.

The Walkinar series is tailored to interest pedestrian enthusiasts, advocates, planners and residents. These Walkinars highlighted how we can collectively rally around walking, an activity that is both central to the state’s active transportation efforts and a critical strategy to promote public well-being.

The Walktober Walkinar series, hosted by the Maryland Department of Planning, help planners, local officials, stakeholders and the public at large learn how to advocate for safe walking infrastructure. Walkinar panelists will highlight pedestrian-focused topics such as safety, health, infrastructure, and enforcement, as well as successful pedestrian programs throughout the State.
