Report: 2013 San Diego Regional Walk Scorecard

2013_Walk_Pic.pngWe created the Regional Walk Scorecard to raise awareness of policies and funding decisions that impact walkability, and to create healthy competition among cities to champion walk-friendly policies and facilities. WalkSanDiego issued the first Walk Scorecard in 2012, in which we recognized National City as the top-ranked jurisdiction.

For this second edition of the Regional Walk Scorecard, special emphasis was given to on-the-ground pedestrian safety improvements. This change was made in direct response to feedback we received following our last effort. This year, we’ve counted crossing improvements at intersections, safer amenities around schools, and the use of innovative treatments such as mid-block crossings and lighting, and signals recently approved by the state to draw more attention to the presence of pedestrians along streets and at crossings.

Report: 2012 San Diego Regional Walk Scorecard

2012_Walk_Picture.pngLike most Americans, San Diegans are increasingly demanding safe and attractive walking conditions, or what we in the livable communities movement call “walkability.” Walkability is something we can feel more than measure. Yet, increasingly, San Diegans recognize improved walkability as a way to improve health, increase the economic vitality of neighborhoods, and conserve natural resources. New tools are emerging to quantify the walkability of streets, neighborhoods, and cities. This report measures, for the first time, the extent to which cities in the San Diego region are responding to the call for more walkable neighborhoods.

WalkSanDiego (one of Circulate San Diego's predecessor organizations) created the Regional Walk Scorecard as a customized tool to measure walkability among the 18 cities in the San Diego region, to raise awareness of policies and funding decisions that impact walkability, and to create healthy competition among cities to champion walk-friendly policies and infrastructure.
