Walk audits are a common public engagement activity used in pedestrian planning, but often are not accessible to or inclusive of people with disabilities. People with disabilities are more likely to rely on walking for daily trips and may be more aware of and impacted by problems in the transportation network. Planning and street design processes benefit from incorporating the expertise of people with disabilities; when a street is accessible for people with disabilities, it is accessible for all people. The Inclusive Walk Audit Facilitator's Guide, developed by the Minnesota Department of Health and Alta Planning + Design, provides specific guidance and information on how to better include people with disabilities and to highlight disability in walk audits so that planning processes are more inclusive.
This webinar will consist of three parts: 1.Best practices and lessons learned for implementing bike and ped facilities in rural cities, and the challenges faced when working with small communities (presented by Bolton & Menk) 2.Example of successful implementation through strong partner relationships and proper planning in the City of Le Sueur, a city of 4,000 people located between Mankato and the Twin Cities (presented by City of Le Sueur) 3.The Minnesota Department of Transportation's (MnDOT) efforts to prioritize planning and investment in pedestrian and bicyclist infrastructure within an equity and environmental justice context has led to its development of the SPACE (Suitability for Pedestrian And Cycling Environment) tool. We will give an overview of MnDOT's SPACE tool and how it is applied to equitably plan and construct pedestrian and bicycle facilities (presented by MnDOT).

WVU Extension Service Working Paper on how mountain biking and mountain biking facilities can bring an array of benefits to rural communities.

Tens of millions of North Americans and Europeans own mountain bikes and millions of them are avid trail riders. The growing popularity of mountain biking in many areas has led to increased trail degradation and conflicts among users on single track. This study could be used as a template to estimate benefits and costs to other users (hikers and equestrians), a critical component of any analysis of the types of policies managers must consider.
