Make your streets safer

Pedestrian safety week is coming up and the City Of Spokane will have a walkability audit workshop this Saturday.

The Office Of Neighborhood Services partnered with the Bicycle Alliance of Washington and the Pedestrian Transportation and Traffic Committee (PeTT) to host a walkability audit workshop on March 20th from 9:00a.m. to approximately 12:00p.m. Training will be held at St Aloysius School (611 E Mission Ave.) in the cafeteria.

From ONS: At this workshop you will learn how to host a walkability audit in your own neighborhood and how to use these audits in federal grant applications for the improvement of your neighborhood’s streets and sidewalks. This section of the training will be followed up by some hands on experience as you will have the opportunity to implement an audit around St. Aloysius School in the Logan Neighborhood.

We hope that you will use your new walkability audit talent to host an audit in your neighborhood during Traffic Awareness and Pedestrian Safety Week (April 9-18).

You can RSVP on Facebook or contact Sandy Scott via email at sscott@spokanecity.org or call at 625-6730. We hope to see you there!
