The Walking Distance Indicator

Everything is in walking distance if you have the time. This was a social media post today that raises interesting questions about well-being indices in communities. On the short list:

  • The number of frequented places and spaces within walking distance to anyone
  • The number of people in walking distance to these venues
  • The average walking distance to these venues
  • The definition of walking distance most common by members of the community

Every community can map these indicators and use the data in several planning contexts.
