Health isn't just about our physical well-being it is also our emotional and environmental well-being. Open space and green space are important to promoting healthy, active living. We need to foster these concepts by putting the infrastructure in place to promote pedestrian and bicycle safety. As a community, we all have a moral obligation to mitigate our contribution to climate change.
