The WALC Institute helps communities envision built environments that are more walkable and livable. Institute team members work with municipalities, state governments, national advocacy groups, non-profit organizations, neighborhood associations, resident advocates, consulting firms and developers to retrofit existing streets or design new places that support active living and create a sense of community.
Technical assistance might include active-living workshops and walkability audits; Safe Routes to School plans; transportation, pedestrian and bicycle master plans; community outreach; policy analysis; technical training for practitioners; “aging-in-place” or “living-in-place” initiatives; livability plans; educational materials; civic engagement plans; corridor and safety studies; facilitators’ and implementation guides; and other support for communities seeking to become more walkable and livable.
