Who's talking about it?

2018, December Media & Press Articles

The City hosted State Street Walk Audits on two separate dates in October 2018; each audit had two locations that included UW-Eau Claire, Old Library Room 1128 (105 Garfield Street) & Fire Station No. 5 (2500 Patton Street). The audits were conducted to allow residents the opportunity to provide input, observations, and a vision of the corridor and to improve the safety and walkability for all users. 

Can I do a Walk Audit on my own time?

Yes. Using the State Street Walk Audit Checklist as your guide feel free to walk a route on your own. Then, simply email a copy of your completed checklist or write your comments to We value your feedback!

Walk Audits: What are they?

Walk audits are great tools in creating communities where residents can participate in making their vision of healthy, safe & walkable streets real. In a walk audit, community members go for a walk together, noting what makes their streets feel comfortable for walking and what’s missing.

Walk audits can vary in length and can be conducted by neighborhood associations, City staff, or other groups. Most often they are conducted in groups using checklists. The groups assess street infrastructure and conditions, documenting barriers, positive features, activities and perceptions of the walking environment.

Why have a walk audit?

A walkable community is a healthy, thriving place in which people of all ages and abilities can get where they need and want to go. Conducting a walk audit can be the start to having a positive change in our community and can lead to a more safe, accessible, and comfortable walking environment.
