WEBINAR: Parks are an Essential Business

FRIDAY, JULY 2
11:00 AM. - 12:30 P.M.
CM|1.5 APPROVED
HOSTED BY: APA Ohio
 
Many cities lack adequate access to parks and trails. This equity gap has severe consequences for the health of our communities. Recognizing these inequities and developing plans and funding mechanisms to address them is critical to the future wellness and competitiveness of our cities. In addition to highlighting examples in other cities, this session will illustrate how planners in Columbus, Ohio, quantified unequitable access, set a goal of every resident to be within one half mile of a park or trail, and developed a targeted strategic land acquisition plan. Equitable access to parks and trails in our communities is critical to understand, document and address. Participants will learn about assessment methods to quantify equitable access and solutions to ensure that everyone has walkable access to parks and trails.
