Abstract

A starting point for assessing how friendly or livable a community is, is to consider its walkability. Walkability has different dimensions, for it implies not only that there be amenities in the community to which one would want to go, but also that one can move about safely; that the person motivated would have the health status or needed support to move about; that there would be means of transportation within and outside of the community, such as public transportation and taxis.
