Walking Audit of Your NeighborhoodWalking Audit of Your Neighborhood

There are several good resources to help you assess the walkability of your local streets. Wouldn't this be a great activity for your block club or block party? 

Check out these tools from the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center. For more in-depth pedestrian planning materials see the Minneapolis Pedestrian Master Plan. The City of Albert Lea has completed a citywide audit with much information about deisgn features and placemaking. And the Federal Highway Administration has a comprehensive resource -- A Resident's Guide for Creating Safe and Walkable Communities.

Round up your neighbors now. Then please let us know if you have completed an audit and how you plan to use the information.
