    Walkable Communities

    This project helped the City of Vancouver gain an understanding of what a “walkable community” means from the perspective of Millennials ages 20-34, and identified key aspects of such communities that should be incorporated into its ‘Vancouver Plan’. By 2030, The City of Vancouver hopes 90% of people are living within an easy walk and roll of their daily needs.
