Dan Burden and Doug Skiles discuss a proposed solution to the traffic and pedestrian problems in San Marco Square.

On Friday, August 3rd, the Health Planning Council hosted a San Marco by Design release event at Southside Baptist Church in San Marco Square.

Dan Burden, the nationally recognized walkable communities guru, was the keynote speaker.  He praised the efforts by the committee, saying that San Marco Square could become a model for other community town centers across the country.

Also at the presentation were students who participated in the Safe Routes to School initiative and videos at Julia Landon College Preparatory Middle School.

Following the presentation, Dan led the group on a tour of San Marco Square, discussing how the square can be made more friendly to pedestrians while also improving parking and traffic flow.
