Step It Up DSM

an action plan for walkable neighborhoods and healthy communities

Step It Up DSM is a collaborative effort between governments, public health organizations, and public schools to make walking and bicycling easier, safer, and more comfortable for our communities. This initiative is a test project, working with three Des Moines schools in the east bank neighborhoods. In time, the lessons learned can be applied to any school or neighborhood in Greater Des Moines.
