Vision

Create a healthier community and provide transportation options for those who cannot or do not drive.

Plan Purpose

The design of our city, work sites, and streets influences how much physical activity we get and plays an important role in preventing many chronic conditions - such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and asthma.  There is compelling research data that show that streets designed to facilitate walking and biking are safer and succeed in increasing the number of people who walk and bike.  Glendale's Safe and Healthy Streets Plan has the potential to boost levels of physical activity and help reverse current obesity trends among residents.  It provides policies to make Glendale a safer and friendlier city for pedestrians and bicyclists.
