The Walkability Reviews are designed to help local administrators, officials, engineers, planners, business owners, residents, and other community stakeholders learn the benefits of providing a safe and attractive environment for walking.

Toole Design Group experts Hannah Remtema, Carol Kachadoorian and Peter Lagerwey, who have extensive experience in pedestrian planning, will be conducting the walkability reviews. Participants will learn how to identify and assess factors that contribute to walkability.
