Idaho Smart Growth works to ensure all Idahoans have effective, efficient, and affordable transportation choices.
Today, about one-quarter of Americans get the recommended amount of exercise. Yet we continue to build our communities in ways that discourage, rather than encourage, active transportation – the simplest way to get everyday physical activity.
Idaho Smart Growth believes that the design and creation of community settings should emphasize physically active choices—especially walking, bicycling and transit use—which are actually the safer, more convenient, less expensive and more appealing choices for increasing numbers of citizens.
We help communities throughout Idaho implement Safe Routes to School, Complete Streets, and other policies that create transportation choices for all of us.
