Walkable communities promote health, foster a sense of connection and community among residents, and provide an overall sense of place and belonging that helps make a neighborhood livable for people of all ages and lifestyles.
A Walk Audit is a simple walk through a specific area using a checklist to identify issues that make walking, riding a bicycle, or driving unsafe or uncomfortable. The issues will be documented, prioritized, and submitted to the City of Tulsa for repair or improvement.
Tulsa BPAC is focusing on the major intersections with high crash rates. We will update the schedule once we have confirmed the date with key stakeholders. Let us know if you have suggestions for other areas that would benefit from a walk audit.

Anyone can perform a walk audit, but a small group makes it even better. Neighborhood associations, clubs, community service organizations, and individuals can perform a walk audit. AARP provides a great toolkit for collecting and recording information about our infrastructure. Click here for their printable tool kit.
Tulsa BPAC can provide copies of the tool kit, supplies, and support for individuals and organizations that are interested in performing their own walk audit. Contact us at email@example.com.
