Creating a Walkable Community

In a large recent survey, we learned that there were only slight differences across the region in terms of the proportion of respondents in our communities who expressed a willingness to support pedestrian infrastructure.

These differences may, or may not reflect people’s revealed preferences for walkability in their own neighborhoods; although we note that on occasion, what people support for the region’s future differs from what they would actually chose for themselves and their family in this regard.

The differences may also reflect the variety of ways in which people define walkability as an attribute of the built environment.
