This is a critical year for parks and recreation on Capitol Hill, with three big pieces of legislation on NRPA’s public policy platform, MAP-21, LWCF, and the Child Nutrition Act, up for re-authorization this year. Almost assuredly, one of these laws affects your park and recreation agency. In these Public Policy Issue Education webinars, the NRPA Public Policy team will break down our three top priority issue areas. In this webinar, “Transportation,” NRPA’s Senior Government Affairs Manager Dave Tyahla and guest speaker Margo Pedroso, Deputy Director of the Safe Routes to School National Partnership, will brief attendees on important parks and recreation transportation legislation, including MAP-21, which is set to expire May 31st.
The key to ensuring accessibility to parks is through creating safe routes to parks within communities. When people have the resources to safely walk to parks, every trip taken by foot is an opportunity to engage in physical activity. Join this webinar to understand the obstacles limiting walkability to parks and learn about the essential elements of a safe route to a park. Experts will share successful efforts currently underway that are improving walkability in communities and creating safer routes to parks.
