Kansas City Walkability Plan Assignment – This plan allows teachers to give a chance to their students to do a walkability assessment in their neighborhood to really get to know the needs of their neighborhood to make it healthier. This survey is divided into three sections. Section 1 tells us where you are walking to and from today, and where you might want to walk in the future. Section 2 tells us how walking conditions in your neighborhood rate. Section 3 determines how you walk in your community and what improvements would make your neighborhood more walkable.
