Walking for Change
with Mark Fenton
The Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation for Health is excited to bring national walkability expert Mark Fenton back to Idaho.
Mark is a recognized authority on the importance of community, environmental and policy issues that encourage pedestrian and bicycling access. He has presented to national audiences, including transportation and planning conferences, engineering and safety organizations, advocacy groups and public health officials.
We partner with Mark to help Idaho community leaders understand the impact of their actions and how their decisions affect pedestrians.
We’re bringing Mark to present at the Idaho Chapter of the American Planning Association Conference to help attendees understand how their actions can impact their communities. Last year, we arranged for him to speak at the Association of Idaho Cities annual conference.
Mark also visits and advises Idaho cities that receive Community Transformation Grants from our High Five initiative. Mark will visit Orofino and Twin Falls in 2019.
