Our Digital Child-Friendly Map and Digital Teen-Friendly City Maps are here!!!
More than 30 organizations and 700 children, parents, and caregivers co-created the nation's first printed and new digital child-friendly city map!
In addition, 3 Masters of the Environment students worked with 400 youth to create a new digital teen-friendly city map.
Free printed child-friendly city maps are available at locations such at the Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Visitors' Center on the Pearl Street Mall, Chautauqua, recreation centers.
(Please note that the printed map does not print well unless using 18" x 24" paper.)
