KC: A City of Opportunity w/ Laura Steele & Michael Kelley from BikeWalkKC
Kansas City, Missouri is really not anybody's shortlist of most walkable and bike-friendly cities in North America, but as you'll learn from Laura and Michael the opportunities abound as BikeWalkKC, the City, and the surrounding communities strive to transform into a healthier, more vibrant, and people-oriented region.
What makes Kansas City so relevant when it comes to the movement to create and promote a Culture of Activity is that it is so unremarkable and reflective of the challenges cities across North America and around the world are facing. As you'll hear from Laura and Michael during this conversation with John, BikeWalkKC is rising to the occasion and view KC as a City of Opportunity.
Yes, they have their work cut out for them. But they are making progress, in education, in policy advancement, and yes, even in infrastructure finally starting to emerge on the ground.
