Challenge cities face:
City budgets are highly insufficient to build or even maintain footpaths on all roads
Too many different structural and recurring challenges make it difficult to solve the problems holistically and effectively

A new civic tool to give power to citizens to collaboratively create local walkability plans - integrating all the requirements of issue mapping, solution identification, and budget estimation in one place.
