Walking Tours & Forums Series
Our signature Walking Tours & Forums Series brings together community members from all walks of life to learn about what makes a successful walkable, livable neighborhood. Tours, typically on Saturday mornings in the spring and fall, are on-the-ground opportunities to see and feel what successful smart growth looks like. Forums occur throughout the year, and feature leading experts on hot topics like parking, zoning, affordable housing, and more. In partnership with APA, AICP credit is often available. The Walking Tours & Forums Series is made possible by the generous support of the National Association of Realtors.
