Greenfield Accessibility ProjectThe DIAL/SELF AmeriCorps Franklin County Team Service Project (FCTSP) partnered with Mass in Motion and used a Massachusetts Association of Health Boards (MAHB) mini-grant to survey sidewalks and determine walkability in the Town of Greenfield. The project surveyed roughly a quarter-mile radius around Greenfield Middle School (GMS).

Accessibility is vital to building a healthy community, from the elderly population to students getting to school. The more sidewalks we can improve to make it easier for pedestrians to get around,the more our community members will be able to fully participate in the community itself. We cannot ignore inaccessible areas just because they may not affect us personally; instead, improvements must continue to be made in order to strengthen our town’s accessibility and inclusivity for everyone.We hope this information will benefit the Greenfield community as a whole!
