It takes a place to create a community, and a community to create a place.

Thank you!


Thank you to everyone who attended the Spaces to Places event with our friends from Project for Public Spaces (PPS). 


Through the workshop we gained useful information on how we can activate and enhance the streets of Hutchinson, re-imagining them as vibrant public spaces that encourage active living, strengthen community attachment and build on what's unique about our town.


Our ideas are forming and we hope yours are too. We'll update you as projects develop. 


Meanwhile, review the tools and resources PPS has available on their website - Placemaking / Streets as Places / The Power of 10 / Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper. These resources may help as your ideas form and you explore the concepts further.


Also, read about how placemaking drives resilient cities and see more Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper examples here. 


Special thanks to all of the partners who worked together to make the Spaces to Places event happen: Hutchinson Community Foundation, Hutch Rec, City of Hutchinson and the Reno County Health Department.

Interested in having a bicycle and pedestrian friendly community? You have come to the right place! We are here to help bring all of the biking and walking resources in the Hutchinson area together in one place. Check back often for updated events, information about projects in the works in Hutchinson, and ways to get involved.

 

We all know that walking and biking are some of the best and easiest ways to stay healthy. They're also some of the best ways to connect with others. There never seems to be enough time to enjoy friends and family. By walking or biking with them, we get to catch up and refresh our minds, and the physical benefits add up, too. Invite a friend or your partner for an after dinner walk, take care of weekend errands with your family on bike, or start a casual walking group with your neighbors. When people walk or bike, our community becomes stronger. We meet neighbors, make new discoveries, and connect to things we care about like history and nature. Along the way you'll build strong bonds and memories.

 

Walk and bike more. Connect more.
