Do you want a better, safer, more walkable, bikeable and accessible Howard County? Have you ever looked at an intersection or a stretch of roadway and said, “Wow, this could be better designed?” Or “When is this going to be fixed?” Join us for our virtual walk audit in the Elkridge neighborhood and help us recommend the changes that are needed to make it easier and safer for everyone to get around!
How does this work? A walk audit usually involves a group of people walking a specific route together, stopping to discuss the design of the built environment and identifying improvements that would make the route safer and more comfortable for all users of the road. Leading up to the event on October 21, you may choose to visit the route in Elkridge on your own and document where we need to build or repair sidewalks, paths, intersections and other areas to make it safer and easier for everyone. You also have the option of exploring the route with Google Maps and providing comments from your own home. Check out our website for more details.
Space is limited! Register before October 2 to claim your toolkit with materials to help you complete the virtual walk audit, along with some free Streets for All swag!
