Help create a walkable city

The Ketchum Community Development Corp. has kicked off its Walkable Ketchum Project and continues to seek input and volunteers to help maximize public input during the planning process.

More than 30 volunteers are already working to devise ways to increase pedestrian and cycling access throughout the Ketchum core, including sidewalk improvements, the addition of solar streetlights and the creation of directional/locational/historical signage.

This project has long been called for by the downtown master plan and is aimed at increasing safety, cutting down on the need to drive in town, and improving vitality by putting more people on our streets.

The team is looking for volunteers who have skills related to this project, as well as the passion and time to commit to weekly meeting through the end of June.

Anyone interested can email KCDC Executive Director Jon Duval at or call 727-2117. As well, ideas can be sent through the KCDC's website:

Lastly, please keep your eyes out for the announcement of a number of public events over the next two months to further garner input from the community.
