Want a safer, healthier neighborhood? Want to make your community more equitable and sustainable? Evidence shows that walkable, livable neighborhoods can improve quality of life for communities in a variety of ways. Join us for a walkability audit of downtown San Jose and learn how to spot the elements in the public realm that add to, or detract from, the experience of a place. Generously sponsored by Kaiser Permanente.
