Cincinnati Preservation Association Welcomes "Walkable City" Author Jeff Speck To Town

Oct 13, 2015

In his latest book, city planner Jeff Speck provides a blueprint for making cities more pedestrian-friendly.

City planner and urban designer Jeff Speck believes America has a variety of problems, from public health to the economy, that could be solved by making cities more friendly for pedestrians. In his latest book, Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time, he lays out a 10-step plan for changing the way we build and think about our public spaces.

Jeff Speck will be in town later this month to speak at the Cincinnati Preservation Association's Annual Fall Forum. He joins us, along with Cincinnati Preservation Association President Paul Muller, and communications consultant Deborah Del Valle, to discuss improving walkability in our cities.

Cincinnati Preservation Association's (CPA) 20th Annual Fall Forum will be held Friday, October 23, and will focus on how to make Cincinnati a more walkable city. The luncheon will be held at the Hilton Netherland Plaza Hotel's Hall of Mirrors from noon-1:30 p.m. For more information, click here.
