TYPE: W&T | PACE: Conversational & Exploratory |TERRAIN: Sidewalk, broken sidewalk, road, gravel | DISTANCE: Approx. 2-3 miles
Walk Description: Do you make decisions that influence design, safety, planning, land use, and overall function of the named corridors below? Do you or does your organization serve populations depending on the named corridors? Do you personally depend on these corridors to support you by foot or by wheelchair? If so, these walks are for you. The walk will showcase the challenging pedestrian realities and creates full-bodied engagement related to gaps in safety, comfort, and accessibility facing our most vulnerable modes of transportation (pedestrians, wheelchairs, strollers, older adults). It will be a two to three-mile walk that moves through difficult intersections and connecting streets and ends with happy hour at The Goods on Colfax and Columbine.
Please only sign up if you find yourself inside of the questions asked at the beginning of the walk description. We have intentionally chosen to do these walks in rush-hour time frames. If you are typically needing to be in the office at these times, consider talking with your colleagues about attending this walk as professional development and education.
