The Walk and Wheel Project is funded by a generous grant from Kaiser Permanente Colorado. In 2014 the City of Lafayette launched a two-year project to promote bicycling and walking within the community. Funding from a Kaiser Permanente Walk and Wheel grant is enabling the City to study current uses and gather resident input that will ultimately lead to the creation of an active transportation map and a prioritization of infrastructure enhancement projects.
