Wendy Landman is Executive Director of WalkBoston and leads the organization’s advocacy around walking for transportation, health, the environment and vibrant communities. Among WalkBoston’s ongoing initiatives are: Transportation for Massachusetts – a coalition working to create walkable, transit accessible and transit served communities; Safe Routes to School programs jointly funded by health care, foundation and public sources; technical assistance programs for municipalities; and programs to train new populations to be walking advocates including public health outreach workers, teens in Boston neighborhoods, and senior volunteers and local public works staff in suburban communities. WalkBoston also leads walks directed to specific areas of our advocacy, reviews private development projects and major transportation projects around the state, works to improve sidewalk snow and ice clearance, and creates wonderful walking maps to attract new walkers and encourage municipalities and large employers to get engaged in advocacy. Wendy came to WalkBoston with 25 years experience in urban planning; spanning all modes of transportation, as well as master planning, smart growth and environmental review. She holds SB and Master of City Planning degrees from MIT, and a Diploma in Urban Design from the University of Edinburgh.
