A community group that is working to achieve the Alderman’s goals around enhancing Uptown’s economic and cultural vitality by making it easy, safe and comfortable to walk around, or bike around, our neighborhood.
We’re doing this in Uptown because:
We are a diverse community with a variety of ethnicities and incomes, but we all have the same wish to feel comfortable and safe when we’re walking around.
- We’re walking, biking & using transit already: 60% of Uptown residents do not own a car, and prefer to get around by transit, walking, or biking. And we’re not alone:
- 30% of regular transit users get the minimum daily requirements for physical activity during their commute.
- 66% of Americans want more transportation options
- 55% of Americans would rather drive less and walk more.
