Age-Friendly DC Block-by-Block Walk

Between March and September of 2014, 104 of 296 Single Member Districts (SMDs) were surveyed regarding walkability, neighborhood amenities, and specific concerns. During the spring Walks, hundreds of volunteers took to the streets of DC to identify neighborhood assets and issues needing attention all through the lens of DC residents 60 and older. When the data from all the Walk areas is combined, it will help the city improve policy and practice to make daily life better for those who live, work or visit.

There are SMDs that still need to be surveyed. Learn how you can help.
