Lucky You! The Ultimate Guide to Walkability


On today’s blog, our Marketing Intern, Laura Schumacher, talks about the luck of the Irish and our lucky treat to all of you, our Ultimate Guide to Walkability Assessment Tools.

Meet Laura

Laura Schumacher began interning with State of Place in December. She recently graduated from Santa Clara University, with a double major in Environmental Studies and Economics. Here she found her passion for better placemaking. She strives to promote and live in walkable areas, and recently moved to Charleston, South Carolina.

Keep Calm and Shamrock On!

On St. Paddy’s Day, everyone is Irish (if only for a day), and as the leprechauns and four leaf clover decorations keep popping up, I can’t help but think of everything that I am lucky to have.

I am truly lucky to be working for a company that is innovatively creating more walkable places, a cause I feel passionately about. I know State of Place will make an amazing impact in the way we build our cities, and maybe it’s the luck of the Irish (ok I’m only like 0.01% Irish, so just go with me on this one), but I get to work and learn from the incredible minds behind State of Place.  

As a fellow lover of awesome places, I am beyond lucky to have moved to Charleston, the best city in the world (ok I might be a bit biased, so don’t just take it from me, Charleston has been voted No. 1 city in the US and Canada for four years in a row by Travel + Leisure). To me, Charleston is the perfect mix of city living, beach town vibes, and charming historic streets all in the beautiful natural scenery of the Lowcountry.

So, in the spirit of getting lucky, we’d like to give all our fellow place lovers and data geeks our Ultimate Guide to Walkability Assessment Tools! With all the walkability assessment tools out there, it can be difficult to know which one works best for you and your needs. Well, fret no longer! Our guide will walk you through each tool, to help you decide which one is right for your development project, neighborhood, or city.
