So great to see the number of walks coming to Salt Lake City, and beyond.
And now we hear there will be even more walks with colleagues in the Middle East. Love it.
There are quite a few Jane Jacobs Walks happening in the Salt Lake City area this year. Check out our site for more information and register your walk today! www.janejacobswalk.org/events/...
Jane Jacobs Walk is a series of free neighborhood walking tours that honor the legacy and ideas of urban activist and writer Jane Jacobs.
Presently speaking with folks from Congress for the New Urbanism and a local pastor about teaming up for a walk during the conference (May 29-June 1). Let's start talking JJW! I'll let you know more as soon as I do.
A few year ago students from the U of U organized a great Jane's Roll on bikes, from 9th and 9th to Sugarhouse and back again, sat at the Coffee Garden talked about their experience. What about a Jane's Roll from coffee house to coffee house one morning (and maybe coffee and a roll at Eva's new bakery?)
What are some other Jane Jacobs Walks that you'd like to see in Salt Lake City? We'd love to help get your ideas and efforts highlighted!
Would be great to see JJ Walks happening in collaboration with the Utah Heritage Foundation celebrating preservation as part of our the city's work on sustainability. What if all of the Community Councils held a walk in the neighborhoods they care most about, and a Bonneville Shoreline Trail walk, or a walk to remind us of all the buried creeks under our feet?
