The Active Neighborhood Checklist is an observational tool designed to assess key street-level features of the neighborhood environment that are thought to be related to physical activity behavior.
The Checklist assesses five general areas: land use, public transit stops, street characteristics, quality of the environment for a pedestrian, and places to walk and bicycle. The data collected can be used to generate data for a needs assessment or research, to raise community awareness about the role of the environment in supporting or discouraging physical activity, or to mobilize community members to advocate for change. Its simple format, lay terminology, item specificity, and relatively short length were intended to make the tool user-friendly for multiple community stakeholders.
