As one of the first steps in implementing the Community Climate and Energy Plan, the City of Eugene initiated the 20-minute neighborhoods assessment in early 2011 to help citizens, planners, and policymakers better understand what areas of Eugene are most walkable and why. The assessment looks at several key factors that influence walkability and layers them together to create a heat map that helps readers see at a glance what areas of town are highly walkable. The assessment will help inform priority actions that can improve walkability and access to services throughout Eugene.
