A lot of people like to take a stroll during warm spring days. But not all the sidewalks in the Kanawha Valley are walker-friendly.
On Friday, organizers of "Takin' It to the Streets" met to discuss ways to improve the broken concrete and street crossings.
The biggest focus, areas in Charleston and South Charleston.
Organizers say it won't be easy, but if they pay attention to detail, its worth their time.
Ron Eck, a civil engineer, said, "West Virginia is focused on physical activity, bettering people's health. Because of gas, we're always thinking, can I make my trip on foot or bike or is it too hard to go place to place."
This summer the group will launch an online study to get the thoughts of walkers and bikers on what they would like to see, then they'll start writing a plan.
They say that could take six months.
