Block Talk Training

A workshop that trains neighborhood leaders on a process of measuring walkability, livability, and accessibility of an area based on elements of design, infrastructure, condition, safety, attractiveness, and place. Neighbors participate in a one-mile facilitated walk measuring these elements, and then create short and long-term project, program, and policy goals for their neighborhood. This process can be replicated for parks, vacant lots, business districts, and any other aspects neighborhood leaders wish to plan around.
