Healthy Design for Healthy Main Streets and Healthy People

By Amy Carver, Walkable and Livable Communities Institute Project and Marketing Coordinator

Mark Fenton, a senior consultant with the WALC Institute, recently delivered a training session to a group of Main Street managers and volunteers from 35 communities across Oklahoma on the topics of healthy community design and the importance of walkability in main-street environments. 

For more than 25 years, Oklahoma's Main Street program has been pumping new life back into the heart of communities across their state by combining preservation and downtown revitalization efforts with powerful economic stimulation. Mark provided an engaging and informative seminar which focused on healthy design in communities.
