Walkable Communities

Let’s all help create walkable and healthier communities.

Walkable communities are safe havens for people who wish to live, work, and enjoy one another’s company while making walking part of their daily lives. In a walkable community, children and young people can walk to school while adults can easily walk to their workplaces and business establishments. These communities encourage all residents to walk more and use their vehicles less for the benefit of the people, the environment, and the local economy.

To find out if you live in a walkable community, ask us about our walkability checklist. Our checklist is a handy tool that you can take with you as you take a short walk around your neighborhood. Take note of your answers and submit the information to our database to help us draft your community’s walkability profile.
