A walkable community is a healthy, thriving place in which people of all ages and abilities can get where they need and want to go.
Wisconsin Downtown Action Council (WDAC) in partnership with AARP Wisconsin and additional support from WEDC will host a Walkability Workshop and Community Walk Audit with the team at Downtown Green Bay, Inc. (DGBI).
Date: Wednesday, June 26th, 2019
Time: 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Location: Backstage, 101 S. Washington St., Green Bay
Participation is open and free to WDAC members, Downtown Managers, Main Street Managers and Community Planning teams to join us. We invite you to experience an audit and gain the tools to conduct a walk audit in your community.
The purpose of the workshop is to make downtown Green Bay a safer, more walkable community while sharing the knowledge and tools available from AARP Livable Communities.
As part of the workshop, we will break into teams to visit and rate nearby roadways and locations by asking and answering questions such as:
· Can pedestrians safely and easily walk on the sidewalk?
· Do pedestrians have enough time to get across the street?
· Are there spots where pedestrians should be able to walk or cross but can’t?
We hope you will join us and learn more about the AARP Livable Communities tools and how you can put them to work in your Community.
