The Houston - Galveston Area Council is looking to work with a local government or transportation agency to conduct a walk/bike audit with the considerable resources of a Metropolitan Planning Organization, according to an email to the Pedestrian and Bicyclist Subcommittee:
H-GAC Walk/Bike Audit
H-GAC already has coordinated Special District Studies in areas where there are significant opportunities to replace vehicle trips with pedestrian or bicycle trips, based on local destinations, land use, density, demographics, and other factors.
Walk Audits are used across the globe to assess pedestrian conditions and suggest policy responses. AARP Texas has led the effort to conduct walk audits in the Houston region in partnership with the Houston Coalition for Complete Streets. AARP Livable Communities provides resources for anyone to conduct a walk audit.
AARP Texas and the Houston Coalition for Complete Streets brought national expert Dan Burden to Houston in 2012, where he declared one part of Houston’s east end “the worst sidewalk in America,” followed with further walk audits including one in the museum district during Houston Complete Streets Week.
