William Forbes is a fervent advocate of active transportation. In August 2014 the University’s Center for a Livable World entered into a contract with the City of Nacogdoches to conduct a livability assessment; examining economic, environmental, and social amenities that could enhance the city’s quality of life for residents and visitors. Amenities suggested in Phase I of the project include alternative transportation routes which could enhance health, reduce automobile traffic, and help promote the City, which has a unique legacy in Texas history as a destination for residents and visitors.
