I was looking at the walk score for my neighborhood, and I have a 40. Not the worst because Raleigh has an average of ~30. https://www.walkscore.com/apartments/search/NC/Raleigh
One of the issues is that I am near the middle of a big old residential area. It is still ITB but over on the east side. It seems like the things I would like to walk to would need some kind of “commercial zoning” aka a change in zoning to be added near me. The Brookeside Market is the best example I have seen of something that increases walk-ability being added to a neighborhood area. Everything else you would want to go to end up on New Bern or Raleigh Blvd, which are kind of less walk-able to by nature.
What are peoples thoughts on increasing walk-ablility and what in my mind falls into “Mixed Use”?
