2nd Walkability Audit, Scott and Albert Streets

Please contact Cheryl Parrot: cheryl.vance@sympatico.ca

We have a 2nd Walkability Audit scheduled for Monday Nov. 24 of Scott & Albert Streets – Rain or shine or dark. We’ll have a staggered start time between 3 and 4:15 p.m. so that anyone who wants to can complete their audit route before it gets too dark. It takes about an hour. So once there are 2 or 3 people they can set off on one of the sections

In June we worked with the Council on Aging on a Walkability Audit of Scott/Albert Streets. This was the first of a 3 season pedestrian walking audit of the same route looking at safety and the feel of our sidewalks. The 2nd Audit is slated for Monday Nov. 24.

We will again divide into 2 parts – half meeting at Tom Brown Arena ( to do Scott) and half meeting at Good Companions (to do Albert). If the section of Albert that is under construction is still not passable we can do the northern MUP on that side. The audit will have about 6 sections (depending on the numbers of people) – 3 on the Albert St. side and 3 on the Scott St. side.

The first audit resulted in a number of Sidewalk Hazards being reported to the City. I have not seen any of them fixed in the Scott St. section. This audit will re-look at those hazards.
Dianne Breton – the lead on this, is inviting someone from City Public Works to come on the walk as well as the present Councillors and the Councillors elect.

Please let me know if you are able and willing to come, about what time and which section you will do (Scott or Albert). If you came last time – doing the same section again would be helpful. Please pass on to any others who might be interested. Please bring a flashlight to help the one recording the audit findings.
