Can you and your family walk or bike to the places that are most important to your daily lives? We can’t. We live on a cul-de-sac in the suburbs and it still takes a half-mile just to get to the main street. Although our great little town of Suwanee, Georgia, is getting greener and working hard to protect green space and build mixed-use developments, it still requires a motor vehicle to get most places. (My home has a 38 out of 100 walkability score; the Suwanee average is 40).
