Jake Greenberg could have moved his Portland specialty food distribution company anywhere after it outgrew its longtime facilities. But where other companies might have chosen a tilt-up warehouse in a freeway office park, Greenberg recognized the hidden costs that held for his employees and the environment. Instead, he chose to renovate and relocate to a long-neglected icehouse in a walkable Portland neighborhood.

Walkability shouldn’t be a value limited to where we live. More and more Oregonians want to work in places within easy walking distance of amenities and services they need to access throughout the day. Smart employers are recognizing this trend, and meeting it.

It’s not something limited to the commercial districts of large cities, either. Almost every Oregon community has great potential to attract and sustain the growing number of employees interested in walkable workplaces.
