Walk-Bike Summit

October 21, 2016

This week I was in Rutland, Vermont, speaking at the Walk-Bike Summit. I actually had three lectures there.

Technical aspects of WalkScore.com in pricing real estate, selling houses near rail trails and other bike friendly infrastructure, and what happens when Complete Streets projects come to communities.

The latter presentation was a 2 credit CEU course sponsored by the VT Association of Realtors. Click on this link to hear the VT Public Radio story about the event and a short interview with me.
