The 38th Avenue Corridor between Wadsworth Blvd. and Sheridan Blvd. is a high priority area for redevelopment identified in the City's updated Comprehensive Plan, Envison Wheat Ridge. A key implementation action from Envision Wheat Ridge is the development of a subarea or corridor plan focusing on a vision for the future of 38th Avenue.

LiveWell Wheat Ridge will hold a special meeting in July. The Wheat Ridge Active Community Environments (ACE) Task Force will provide a training on how to conduct a Walking Audit.
Date: July 27, 2011
Time: 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Where: 44th Avenue & Wadsworth redevlopment site (southeast corner), Wheat Ridge
This meeting will provide a rich opportunity to roll out key concepts off a Walking Audit and introduce one of the many Walking Audit tools that have been used in Colorado or the US. During this highly interactive gathering, we will:
• Provide a brief history of the project site and plans for redevelopment;
• Share an overview of the walking audit tool; and
• Invite you to walk the site with an audit checklist to record your observations.
Communities around the country are using walking audits to ensure their communities are safe and accessible for
pedestrians, cyclists and users of public transportation of all ages and abilities. By participating you will gather
an expanded understanding of how a walking audit works and how individuals or groups can use it to document
observations about the built environment in their communities.
To learn more about a Walking Audit, visit http://streetswiki.wikispaces.com/Walk+Audit. To RSVP, please contact Ted Heyd at 303-953-8470 or tedheydgmailcom (tedheydgmailcom) . Please bring your camera and note pad. We hope to see you there!!
