Have you seen the #EverySingleStreet challenge?

Scott Clark travelled #EverySingleStreet of Cornwall, Canada, and shared his thoughts on Twitter. “You can observe so much more on foot or by bike,” he said. 

As soon as I saw it, my brain lit up! 

What could we–all of us in small towns–do with an “every single street” project?

You could walk (or bike or roll) your entire town. It could be just you, you and some friends, or even a town-wide challenge. Invite those local officials to join you. 

Take a lot of pictures. Show the good things, and show the potential to get better. Show us the kind of town you want to become.

My buddy C. Brandon Chapman, aka Chappy® saw my first tweet about this, and he is already on board. He’s a city councilor for Pullman, Washington. He tweeted: 

“Today I started a new project called #EverySingleStreet. This year, one of my goals is to walk every single official Pullman street and learn more about our city and find ways we can improve. I’m taking lots of pics to document. #PullmanProud
