Walkable Communities

In 2001, SANDAG Directors provided $1 million in TransNet funding for a Walkable Communities Demonstration Program. Projects in this one-time demonstration program show how walkable communities benefit neighborhoods, increase pedestrian safety, and contribute to smart growth planning.

Eight demonstration projects have been completed in the region. They include four construction projects and four planning projects.
