Is your city walkable?

Just got an announcement from a friend of mine who has started a new campaign for trying to "raise America's Walk Score." They have launched a web site with walkability rankings of 2,508 neighborhoods in the largest 40 U.S. cities. If you go to the site and type in your address you can see how you score (Downtown Davis does really well). And if you support walkable communities they have a petition online to encourage Congress to support walking towns ...


  1. my part of south davis only got 42. I don't think it takes into account walking in extreme heat though, which might lower it somewhat!

  2. Well, they probably did not account for flatness, which would raise all of Davis' score
