Just how easy is it to walk around Portsmouth? That's something AARP Rhode Island is hoping to find out.
AARP is seeking volunteers and survey responders for a Walkability Workshop to be held in Portsmouth on Monday, Aug. 1.
At least four teams of volunteers will walk along East Main Road, starting around , to study how easy it is to walk around the "town center."
The workshop will begin on Aug. 1 at 9 a.m. with breakfast and registration at Atria Aquidneck Place, 125 Quaker Hill Lane.
From 9:30 to 11 a.m., AARP will give presentations on AARP's strategy, including information about a town center status, bicycling initiatives on Aquidneck Island and a review of the walkability survey process.
At 11 a.m., AARP volunteers will “hit the streets” with survey teams. At noon, the teams will return for lunch and debriefing of what they observed.
Volunteers are needed for this study! To volunteer or for more information, call AARP at (401) 248-2655 or e-mail email@example.com.
