Public Participation

Public Participation [walk-by visioning] and [one-on-one merchant interviews]  WalkBoston received a grant from the Federal Transit Administration in 2009 to explore ways to find new tools to increase the number and diversity of people and merchants participating in community planning. This research developed anew method of public participation we call Walk-by visioning, as well as use of one-on-one merchant interviews.

Step on it - a sidewalk scavenger hunt

WalkBoston knows that nothing draws a crowd like a crowd, and sometimes the only thing it takes to get community members out and walking is an interesting event. WalkBoston offers our members and community supporters dozens of opportunities a year to learn more about WalkBoston and get to know their communities on foot.  From lectures and historical walks to scavenger hunts and networking events we are constantly looking for new ways to get people walking and talking about walking.
