NRPA in partnership with The Trust for Public Land and the Urban Land Institute is leading a nationwide movement to ensure there’s a great park within a 10-Minute Walk of every person, in every neighborhood, in every city across America. Research shows one in three Americans – more than 100 million people – don’t have a park within a 10-minute walk of home.
The campaign marks the start of a multi-year partnership with cities and mayors across the country. Beginning in 2018, the campaign partners will be working with cities across the country on measurable policies and strategies to advance the 10-minute walk vision
Mayors around the country are being asked to sign on to this initiative and you may have been asked questions from them or your leadership. NRPA has provided information, research, and tools at http://www.nrpa.org/our-work/p
artnerships/initiatives/10-min ute-walk/. I have also attached a toolkit for your use.
