A simple quick analysis of the existing sidewalk infrastructure within the Imagine Austin Centers show how “walkable” these centers currently are.
In sum, only 5.03% of total sidewalks are located within these Activity Centers. Downtown Austin, holds 28.04% of all sidewalks within these centers.
Why do we want these Centers to be more walkable? Should we prioritize funding on pedestrian infrastructure within these areas?
More development about this post will come soon, as other variables will help us understand how we have been building pedestrian infrastructure in our city.
