Assessing The Potential Of Walkable Communities

Few mixed-use communities nationwide are close enough to each other to reduce the need to drive between them.

The pedestrian-oriented development forum was held as part of a ULI project funded by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to document and raise awareness of the value to real estate developers in creating communities that de-emphasize auto use as the primary means of transportation."
