For Walk Hermosa, Leadership Hermosa Beach teamed up with the Blue Zones Project, taking inspiration from the Blue ZonesTM “vitality compass,” which states that walking 10,000 steps a day will increase well being. The project consisted of the creation and installation of professional-grade signs throughout Hermosa Beach that indicate distance, in steps, between various locations in Hermosa Beach to promote walking throughout the city. The project’s celebratory unveiling took place June 1, 2013 with the district Assemblyman and City mayor attending the ceremony near the Hermosa Beach Pier.
“Our goal was to promote individual health for residents and visitors and promote public safety and business development through town,” said Tom Dunbabin, Project Manager.
