Everyone benefits from walking. But walking needs to be safe and easy. Take a walk with your child or friends and use this workshop to decide if your neighborhood is a friendly place to walk. Take heart if you find problems, there are ways you can make things better.
Dan Burden is the founder of Walkable Communities, Inc. a non-profit consulting firm in High Springs, Florida. He has spent the last twenty-five years developing, promoting and evaluating alternative transportation and sustainable communities at national, regional, state and local levels.
First, come to the workshop!
Second, pick a place to walk, like the route to school, a friendís house or just somewhere fun to go.
Third, review the workshop checklist before you go, and as you walk, note the locations of things you would like to change. At the end of your walk, if youíve identified any problem area, the next step is to figure out what you can do to improve your communityís score.
