Join LISC for a LEED approved continuing education credit training sponsored by the Mel King Institute for Community Building!

The Mel King Institute for Community Building fosters vibrant and thriving Massachusetts communities by advancing the skills, knowledge and leadership ability of professional practitioners and volunteer leaders in the community development field. Mel King trainings focus on four topic areas: Community Organizing and Planning, Economic Development, Nonprofit Governance, and Real Estate Development. 

The upcoming Walkability training will cover what it means for a community to be “walkable” and how to create neighborhoods that are safe, active, accessible, and vibrant. This training, which is geared toward architects, planners, Community Development Corporation staff, public health advocates, municipalities, and other community groups will explain the basics of how to design development projects and advocate for neighborhoods that promote walking and active living. This training will include a walking component in the neighborhood where we will explore issues of walkability first hand!

WalkBoston Executive Director Wendy Landman and Project Manager Adi Nochur will lead this training, and guest speakers will include Mike Chavez, Enterprise Rose Fellow at the Fairmount Collaborative; David Queeley, Eco-Innovation Fellow at Codman Square Neighborhood Development Corporation; and Marah Holland, Health Equity and Community Wellness Coordinator at Madison Park Development Corporation. 

The event will take place on April 5th from 9:30am-12:30pm (9:00am refreshments) at Codman Square Health Center’s Black Box Theater, 637 Washington Street, Dorchester, MA 02134.
