Good Walking is Good Business

Good Walking is Good Business

Make an investment in improving the walking conditions around your place of business. It will pay off with more customers, healthier employees, and a stronger bottom line.

The benefits of walking are widely recognized. People who walk as part of their daily routine are more likely to get the exercise needed to stay healthy. A healthy workforce greatly reduces healthcare costs for employers and the public. Walking is also a social activity, and people who walk in their neighborhoods tend to be more involved in neighborhood life and civic activities.

Neighborhoods or business districts can be made more walkable. Modest improvements, such as active storefronts, benches, and fun events help enliven areas and attract walkers. Since people want to be where the action is, the more that people are out and about walking, the more exciting your neighborhood will be.
