Twin Cities CTLUS Initiatve: Identifying and Evaluating Regionally Significant Walkable Urban Places

CTOD report provides methodology for assessing and boosting the walkability of existing activity centers. As demographic trends, quality of life concerns, and personal preferences shift, more and more residents of the Twin Cities region are looking to live in walkable neighborhoods with access to shops and services and alternatives to driving. These demands—also seen in national trends—will form an ever-greater segment of the real estate market in the coming decades. Responding to these trends will be necessary to preserve the economic strength and competitiveness of the Twin Cities region.
