Awhile back I posted and article in frustration over all the tracks that are locked up and kept away from the community of runners who want to use them. This follow-up comment
I was so happy to see this post, because this is the exact topic that I am doing my graduate thesis on. My project involves converting abandoned/unused buildings or vacant lots into usable sport and recreation facilities, with the focus being on building community tracks. If anyone has any advice for me or tips on where I can find more articles on this topic, I would be very grateful for the help. I am also looking for people to interview about their experiences (good or bad) with accessing tracks in their neighborhood. I want to know what works and what doesn’t. If anyone would be willing to do an interview with me, that would be great!
Here is an online survey on the topic. Please help out and take a moment to complete it. It only takes about 8-10 minutes and would really help me out.
