IQC Hosts Summit on Walkability and Placemaking Summit in Oklahoma Towns

The University of Oklahoma’s Institute for Quality Communities (IQC) is partnering with the Kay County Healthy Living Program to host the Oklahoma Towns: Walkability and Placemaking Summit. The summit will feature workshops and speakers from Kay County and other parts of Oklahoma to highlight real-world examples of changing an environment to promote walkability and placemaking. The summit also will showcase projects and success stories from communities that have created active living environments that are safe and welcome to pedestrians and bicyclists. 

The summit will take place June 13-14, 2022, in Ponca City, Oklahoma. There will also be a pre-conference meet-up in Newkirk on June 13th at 5:30 pm. This meet up will highlight the recent virtual reality storytelling project with Trifecta Communications, OU IQC, and Newkirk Main Street. To read more and register for the summit, click here.
