Walk Friendly Communities is a national recognition program developed to encourage towns and cities across the U.S. to establish or recommit to a high priority for supporting safer walking environments. The WFC program will recognize communities that are working to improve a wide range of conditions related to walking, including safety, mobility, access, and comfort.

WalkDenver, a partner organization to DenverUrbanism, is working with the City and County of Denver on the community assessment to create a baseline of data that will provide a basis for pedestrian policy and infrastructure improvements in Denver.

WalkDenver is looking for volunteer researchers to help with this task. Time commitment varies between half an hour to two hours. Multiple commitments are available. For more information, please contact Diana Zinkl by email at: [email protected].
