Walk Score…fight rising gas prices…Walk!
My friend Judy Tart (woman of wide-ranging intelligence and heart) has appeared on Riehlife several times in the Village Commons category. She is, in effect, one of the contributors to the Riehlife Blog-Magazine.
Today she writes about a site that gives you a WALK SCORE.
"You enter your address (or where you are thinking of moving), and it shows your WALK SCORE---how many places are close enough to easily walk to. This is going to be more and more a factor as gas prices get even higher."
My apartment complex in the Central West End of St. Louis scores 82 per cent as a walkable neighborhood. That's one reason I chose to locate here 11 months ago...I could scan this on a body level.
The Walk Score site is inspired by the Sightlines Institute, Cascadia's sustainability think tank, provides research and tools to help create a healthy, lasting prosperity in the Northwest.
