A Walkability Assessment (also called a walk study or walk audit) looks at the streets, sidewalks, and physical activity spaces in your neighborhood to find the best walking route. Things like where you feel safest walking and where people like walking the most help plan the route.
This information is then used to create a walking map of the area for residents and visitors.
Walkability Assessments are also an important way to share community concerns about neighborhood conditions with City of Columbus, area leaders, and other community members.
The document used for walkability assessments is an open-ended, qualitative tool. It can be downloaded here, and a map of the neighborhood of interest should be added prior to use. A two-page survey may also be used to gather additional data, available for download here.
