Benefits of Living in a “Walkable” Community

There are many benefits to living in One Loudoun such as all the local restaurants and entertainment, the central park, community rec center and pool and so much more. But perhaps one of the biggest benefits is the fact that it is a walkable community.

Everything you need is just a stroll away. So instead of spending half your life shuttling around in your car you can get out and enjoy the beautiful Ashburn, VA spring weather on foot. Aside from just the pleasure of an afternoon stroll, there are many other benefits to living in a new walkable community.

Health

Walking does wonders for your overall health preventing things like weight gain, cancer, high blood pressure and heart disease. A study done by the research organization Sightline states that walking 30 minutes a day can add up to a year and a half to your life on average. It also showed that people who live in a walkable community are 2.4 times more likely to walk 30 minutes a day than those who do not.

Less car time can have a dramatic impact on your air quality. A study by The Science of the Total Environment shows that the air you breath while in your car is likely the worst air you’ll breathe in an entire day.

Sense of Community

Another study done by the SPDRC showed that people in walkable communities have greater sense of community, pride of ownership and a feeling of camaraderie with their neighbors. This connection and social support leads to higher levels of happiness.

Safety

Walkable communities have been shown to be safer. A high amount of community members outside means more witnesses, making the location a less appealing target for crime.

Another aspect of safety comes from the design of walkable communities. There are more accessible walking areas and crosswalks, which decreases the likelihood of pedestrians being struck by cars.

Financial

When you live in a community where you can walk to everything you need, you do a lot less driving. Not only does this save on gas money, but it also saves on the mileage and wear and tear of your vehicle.

In addition, residential property values tend to be higher in walkable communities making them a great place to invest in a home.

Environmental

If you’re concerned about the environment then living in this type of community is a great choice. The reduced traffic, gas use, noise and air pollution can have a significant impact on the environment.
