North Ford St. Walking Audit Workshop @ Hillside Community Church
May 3 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Join friends, neighbors, and other community stakeholders for a FREE workshop to learn about the upcoming N. Ford Street Walking Audit.

Here’s what we’ll cover:

  • Define a walk audit
  • Help you to understand the study area (Walking Audit Scope Map pdf download )
  • Introduce tools used to conduct a walking audit

What: Walking Audit Training
When: Tuesday, May 3 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
Where: Hillside Community Church – 103 N. Ford Street, Golden

Our ability to comfortably walk throughout Golden is important to our quality of life including our health, environmental quality and local economy. Focusing on a section of N. Ford Street, this group exercise will empower you to evaluate what it’s like to walk in the area, whether for work, school, errands or exercise. Is it pleasant and inviting, or unsafe and difficult?

The actual North Ford Street Walking Audit will be conducted on May 11 from 10 a.m. to noon at Hillside Community Church. You do not have to attend this training in order to participate in the audit.

Our experience and impressions will inform an Active Living Framework Plan to guide the work of the Jefferson County Active Living Coaliti􀀀on over the next two years.
