Developed a groundbreaking web-based platform WalkBike.Info “Your hyper local, one stop shop for people who walk and bike” for each of the grant recipients. The fully responsive website encourages use of the existing facilities as well as being a tool to develop new plans. Work focuses a number of communities and one county:

Detroit –  focusing on transforming Rouge Park and Cody Rouge Neighborhood

Grand Rapids – with an emphasis on the south side of town and access to regional trails

Roseville – identifying a near term nonmotorized network and promoting walking in city parks

Eastpointe – promote walking in city parks

Center Line – online promotion and outreach

Lenawee County – outreach of existing resources though a web-based platform
