Walkability in the University Area Community

Since locals are the experts when it comes to their neighborhoods, we reached out for their help to ask how walkable is your neighborhood?.

The University Area Community Development Corporation (UACDC) in conjunction with the Florida Department of Health – Hillsborough, Hillsborough MPO, and the Planning Commission developed an outreach plan to engage neighborhood residents and visitors to the University Area Community Center who attended classes and programs. Asked to rate the conditions they experienced, as well as their observations and thoughts during a single walk, 288 residents responded to the survey. To incentivize participation, two raffles for bicycles were offered for individuals who completed the survey. This report provides a basic breakdown of trends that were identified from analyzing responses. The input received from residents is extremely useful towards identifying road and sidewalk needs, and it provides an invaluable resource towards future community planning efforts.
