North Monroe Walk Audit Report


On June 9, A 'non-motorized' group I'm involved in gathered to conduct a walk audit of historic North Monroe Street. A walkability audit is an evaluation of the walking environment that identifies safety, access, and convenience concerns for pedestrians. Audits also identify potential solutions, such as engineering treatments, policy changes, or education and enforcement measures.

Margie Hall, from the City of Spokane's Planning Department, was kind enough to compile our results into a report that you can read right here. It's easy and interesting reading so look it over and give me your opinion of Monroe Street.
