Our first step in the process is to have residents collect detailed data within their neighborhoods using a specialized mobile app or paper version. Groups of neighbors will conduct walk audits and share perceptions which will be used to map optimal routes, existing gaps, and future needs. Gather your neighbors and plan to join one or more walk audits. Staffled walk audit dates are July 8, 14, 15, 22, 23, 28 and 29 from 6:00-7:30pm. Specific locations will be announced soon.
