To be successful, Germantown must improve walkability, especially in the Central Business District. Residents crave a place where they can gather and enjoy food, friends and entertainment within a walkable distance. The City strives to be a leader in improved access and mobility for all forms of transportation with a focus on drivers, commuters, cyclists and pedestrians. These objectives, in addition to a focus on well-planned development and home maintenance, are important to improving property values in Germantown.
