Monroe Street Sidewalks

I like this one. Really makes the city seem like an urban place (not that it wasn't in the first place)

Indeed I might be, TJ.

Let's just remember, this is not a rating of how pedestrian friendly a city is, but rather how many people actually walk in the city. See this quote from an Atlanta forumer for more:

Again, this not a rating of most walkable city, it is a rating of the most WALKING cities meaning that a good percentage of the citys residents DO walk, in this case, primarily to commute to work via mass transit.

that atlanta forumer is talking steam... Tallahassee sidewalks are definatly great. But underused, mostly. I love seeing a crowd hurry across monroe street on a weekday, but visitors might not realize, they are hurrying beacuse they had to wiat 10 minuites for the ped signal. Tallahassee could do more ped bridges in key places. I Love the fact we made tops of fla and country. Blairstone is fantastic by the way. And the integrations in the SE cap circle will definatly move us up the list in the nation aswell.. we be a tree city if you can talk a walk to tour them all right?

^You sure do have a point about Blair Stone! That road is awesome, everything about it.

The meandering sidewalks along capital circle in my opinion will be a waist of money, but they sure do look good in the renderings!

The work the city has been doing all throughout the community has been amazing. As it relates to sidewalks I've seen crews working all along Hwy 90, and I hear rumor 27 is next.

I was thinking about the number of students walking on campus... if that was included in the data, tallahassee could have one of the highest walking populous of any small city. But most kids are just parking on the opposite side of campus, not tru pedestrians.

^and we have 3 campuses... so that might be part of the thing... but then again, Gainesville, Orlando, Tampa, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, West Palm and other cities throughout Florida have campuses with walking pedestrians also... so there has to be more to it than that.

If they were talking the actual connectivity of the sidewalks... this would make a lot more since.

Speaking of studies... a study will soon be released on our downtown connectivity plan. I read it over today, and I found alot of things in it that I don't agree with. As I always say, these studies never tell us anything new... I don't know why we continue to waist our money on them.
