    Hartford Earth Week Coltsville Area Walk/Bike Audit

    We will be doing a walk/bike (and transit) audit of the area around Coltsville in Hartford in collaboration with:
    (1) Friends of Colt Park
    (2) The Hartford Athletic (soccer team)
    (3) Transport Hartford Academy
    (4) BiCi Co. Community Bicycle Workshop
    (5) The Hartford Garden Club
    (6) City of Hartford Complete Streets Committee
    (7) City of Hartford Office of Sustainability
    “Walk audits are a great tool to gather information about street conditions, engage community members, and inform planning and traffic safety projects. Through walk audits, you can help improve walking, health, and quality of life in your community! In a walk audit, community members go for a walk together, noting what makes their streets feel comfortable for walking and what is missing. Walk audits can be informal and casual events with just a few friends, or can include city council members, traffic engineers, and detailed forms.” – from the National Safe Routes to School Partnership
