How walkable is your community? The Walkability Checklist can help you find the answer. Inside you'll find insightful questions, allowing you to evaluate your neighborhood's walkability. In addition to the questions, the Checklist provides both immediate answers and long-term solutions to your neighborhood's potential problems. Pick a place to walk, like the route to school or a friend's house. As you walk, use the checklist to describe problem areas and things to change. After the walk, answer all of the questions and you'll see how your route rates on the walkability scale. Take heart if you find problems, there are many ways you can make things better.
