The Nutrition and Physical Activity Program within the South Dakota Department of Health is pleased to provide the newly revised Active Transportation Checklist.
This resource, revised in 2020, will assist community leaders in starting conversations about walkability, improving the built environment, and gives a snapshot of the necessary steps for increasing active transportation with links to many resources.
Utilize this resource in your community to launch discussions about creating access and opportunities for increasing physical activity among residents of all ages and abilities.
Creating activity-friendly routes to everyday destinations is an evidenced-based strategy to improve walkability and physical activity, with the overall public health goal of preventing chronic disease.
The Checklist is a call to action for SD community leaders and advocates working to create healthy communities and increase physical activity—let’s keep SD moving!
