Announcing our semi-finalists for the State of Place giveaway!
Congrats to our six awesome semi-finalists! We were so blown away by the overwhelmingly positive response! From helping make the case for complete streets applications, to helping balance the pressures of growth & walkability, to showcasing the economic benefits of revitalizing car-oriented main streets, to using data as a "common" language and recruitment tool, to quantifying the value of a vibrant downtown, to arming citizen-led groups with the data they need to advocate for better places - we're honored by your excitement and enthusiasm for State of Place. We can't wait to help - not only the three winners - but all communities - make the case for great places! Scroll below to find out more about how we quantify what people love about places and forecast the benefits of making them better and sign up for a demo to find out more!
Three winning communities will receive a walkability assessment for five blocks of their choice, which includes a State of Place Index (based on 290 built environment features) & Profile (diagnosis of assets & needs based on ten urban design dimensions). See how this helped the City of Tigard #GetWalkable and download a sample report of what you would get! Finally, check out our Ultimate Guide to Walkability Tools to see how we "measure" up to other tools like Walk Score.
