Sell Walkability on Equity

There are powerful equity reasons to invest in walkability
  • Jeff Speck

Abstract

BECAUSE IT FAVORS URBANISM, walkability is prey to charges of elitism. Such claims gain momentum as our nation’s limited number of walkable neighborhoods, desired by more and more people, become increasingly unaffordable to all but the wealthy. In the face of these sentiments, it pays to be armed with the most persuasive arguments about why walkability and bikeability are among the most effective tools available for helping to level the playing field in our increasingly inequitable society.
