Join us for a community walk audit in Hancock! What is a walk audit? A walk audit is where a group of people walk around an area and rate how walkable it is, meaning how easy and pleasant is it to walk there. We hope to conduct walk audits in downtown areas around Washington County. The goal is to assess how walkable Washington County is and to find ways that walkability can be improved in the county.
The walk will start at the Hancock Town Museum and Visitor Center at 42 W Main St. and will begin at 3:00pm. The walk is about 1.5 miles and will incorporate part of the Western Maryland Rail Trail and Widmyer Park. The walk will take about 1.5 – 2 hours and we will stop along the way to discuss different segments.
Everyone is welcome to participate!
