Walk Friendly Communities is a national recognition program developed to encourage towns and cities across the United States to establish or recommit to a high priority for supporting safer walking environments.
Walk Friendly Communities recognizes communities who are working to improve a wide range of conditions related to walking including safety, access, mobility, and comfort.
Sidewalks are essential for a walkable community. Like roadways, sidewalks should be designed for all users. Continuous and accessible sidewalk networks improve mobility for all pedestrians and are particularly important for pedestrians with disabilities.
Billings City Code Section 22-406 states property owners or their tenants are required to remove all snow, ice, slush etc from the sidewalk in front of their property within 24 hours of snow event.
