Walk Your Neighborhood!

In November 2015, Sustain Charlotte and OrthoCarolina piloted a project called Walk Your Neighborhood (#WalkCLT) to promote walking as a form of transportation!

Using wayfinding signs, this project encouraged residents of the neighborhoods surrounding the Plaza Midwood Business District to walk, rather than drive to destinations in this area. Signs tell residents how many minutes it will take them to walk to popular destinations. This pilot project was a great success and will be continued in additional neighborhoods in Charlotte!
