  15. 15. Walkable Neighborhoods Walkability offers surprising benefits to our health, the environment, our finances, and our communities. • Health: The average resident of a walkable neighborhood weighs 6-10 pounds less than someone who lives in a sprawling neighborhood. • Good public transit and access to amenities promote happiness. • Environment: 82% of CO2 emissions are from burning fossil fuels. Your feet are zero-pollution transportation machines. • Finances: Cars are the second largest household expense in the U.S. • Communities: Studies show that for every 10 minutes a person spends in a daily car commute, time spent in community activities falls by 10%. What makes a neighborhood walkable? • A center: Walkable neighborhoods have a center, whether it's a main street or a public space. • People: Enough people for businesses to flourish and for public transit to run frequently. • Mixed income, mixed use: Affordable housing located near businesses. • Parks and public space: Plenty of public places to gather and play. • Pedestrian design: Buildings are close to the street, parking lots are relegated to the back. • Schools and workplaces: Close enough that most residents can walk from their homes. • Complete streets: Streets designed for bicyclists, pedestrians, and transit.
