Awards (recognition at work, homeowner maintenance awards)

Recognizing pedestrians and others who improve Seattle’s walkability is an important piece of encouraging more trips by foot. Awards can either be purely recognition, or they can be accompanied by some other form of reward such as a prize or money.

When employers recognize employees for walking, they accomplish several things. For example, they are demonstrating that walking is valued by the company and that walking is an accepted norm among fellow employees. Recognizing existing walkers may also help strengthen resolve or encourage increased walking.

Homeowners have a vital role in maintaining Seattle’s walking infrastructure. By keeping the walkable zone clear, and by repairing broken sidewalks, homeowners are contributing to Seattle’s walkability. Awards can recognize homeowners for this effort as well as provide an opportunity to apprise other homeowners of their legal responsibilities in a positive manner.
