“Streets are often seen as merely a way to get from here to there, but they should be seen—and designed—as  walkable, interconnected public spaces, like parks and plazas, where communities are built and strengthened. Walkable streets and neighborhoods benefit us all, but how can we tell when our streets have walk appeal? Matt Covert of 1000 Friends of Wisconsin will deliver a brief talk that describes and explores the ways we understand walkability as a way of building stronger neighborhoods and communities. Attendees will then take part in a walkability brainstorming session and share stories about their walking experiences.”
