Step out with WALK Santa Fe

This month, Santa Fe is trying to step up its “walkability” with a pedestrian friendly project aimed at showing an affordable way to connect and develop community. The prototype initiative was developed by the nonprofit Creative Santa Fe in conjunction with national project WALK [Your City], “One of the things that’s becoming an international dialogue is how important it is to have a walkable city,” says Cyndi Conn,  Creative Santa F executive director. Demonstrating the city’s commitment to increase cross-city foot traffic, the project that involves 81 businesses will run through the month of November. Its main goal is to develop visible signage. A Halloween launch party that features live music and festivities highlights a path spanning from the Plaza through the Guadalupe District that connects downtown to the Railyard galleries and restaurants.  Printed maps embedded with Google Map technology will outline the 90 temporary signs set up over the city that mark minute-by-minute distances between museums, parks and shops. “WALK [Santa Fe] Ambassadors” will be on hand at the launch and throughout the month to answer questions. For more information or to become a WALK Ambassador, contact Katelyn Peer at kpeer@creativesantafe.org. (Alexa Mangrum)
