MI: MDOT Promotes Walkability Reviews

Interested in making your neighborhood or community a more pleasant place to walk? The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is offering a series of walkability reviews in six communities around the state, designed to teach the basic principles of walkability from a non-technical perspective.

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 Peter Lagerwey, Hannah (Remtema) Pritchard, and Carol Kachadoorian, who have extensive experience in pedestrian planning, will conduct the reviews. Participants will learn how to identify and assess factors that contribute to walkability.

Walkability Reviews will be conducted from April 21 to 25.
