An expert in how to make cities more ‘walkable’ comes to Tulsa to speak about resurgent downtowns. Author and urban planner Jeff Speck is known for his book…Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time.

Speck says there are four things that must be done simultaneously to make cities more walkable…the walk has to be useful, safe, comfortable, and interesting. He will speak tomorrow night at the Cox Business Center. The presentation is free. It starts at 6:30, and you are asked to RSVP in advance.
