With more reasonable weather this coming Sunday, we've rescheduled the Walkability Audit.
Beaverbrook Winter Walkability Audit - Sun, Feb 22 1:30 PM @ Community Centre
In October 2014, volunteers completed a Walkability Audit in Beaverbrook to access the conditions of sidewalks, pathways and walking routes. Six different routes were evaluated, including routes to a local grocery store, area schools, and the library.
A winter audit is being planned for Sunday February 15, 2015 to revisit the routes in snowy and icy conditions. This event is being organized by the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association, Ottawa's Council on Aging, and Ecology Ottawa, and is part of a city-wide effort to study walkability in various neighbourhoods.
Volunteers are needed for Sunday, February 15th and are asked to meet at the Beaverbrook Community Centre at 1:30 pm. Small groups will be provided with a clip board, a route map, and a survey checklist. Each group will be assigned a route of 1 to 2 km. Note takers will be provided for people who have mobility aids or who need assistance for some other reason.
