What’s Your Walk Score?


walkscore.com gives any location a “walk score” based on proximity to certain amenities.

“Walkable neighborhoods offer surprising benefits to the environment, our health, our finances, and our communities.

Environment: Cars are a leading cause of climate change. Your feet are zero-pollution transportation machines.

Health: The average resident of a walkable neighborhood weighs 7 pounds less than someone who lives in a sprawling neighborhood.

Finances: One point of Walk Score is worth up to $3,000 of value for your property. Read the research report.

Communities: Studies show that for every 10 minutes a person spends in a daily car commute, time spent in community activities falls by 10%.”

    Hallo David,
    I replied in an email as well tried to call you today, but the voice mail box was full. The best thing to find out about meetings of STI is to get in touch with the contacts of the various working groups. See our website at sandpointtransitioninitiative.org.
    Hope this helps you.

    I am looking for Richard Khunel. I work at the Daily Bee and am interested in having him write/submit an article on sustainability for a special section that we are publishing to promote Earth Day, and the events happening in our community surrounding it. The article would be relatively small, between 2-300 words. It would be ideal to have it briefly touch on what we could do as individuals that would have the most positive impact for our community (and therefore world at large). It would be great if it could appeal to green people, but somehow spread a broader message to people who aren’t already on the green boat.
