Age-Friendly DC Block-by-Block Walk

Block by Block Walk
Age-Friendly DC 2024-2028 is looking for participants in every domain.  Contact Gail Kohn ([email protected]) 202-341-4149 if would like to participate in meetings as the Age-Friendly DC 2024-2028 Strategic Plan Draft is completed by May 31, 2024.
The Age-Friendly Block-by-Block Walk was one way Age-Friendly DC sought to make the District a better place to live, work, and play.. Walk participants identified neighborhood assets and issues needing attention all through the lens of older DC residents. Why? Because what's good for older residents can be good for those with different mobility needs — wheelchair, tricycle, walker or stroller.
Between March and September of 2015, 115 of 296 Single Member Districts (SMDs) were surveyed regarding walkability, neighborhood amenities, and specific concerns with local Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners, community members, and student volunteers from Trinity College, Catholic University, the Univeristy of the District of Columbia, Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and George Washington University.
