Transportation Design for Communities
The challenge of any transportation initiative is to balance engineering and performance with other community priorities, such as neighborhood preservation, economic vitality, and pedestrian friendliness. Increasingly, the public and elected officials are dismayed by the consequences of excessively wide roads, endless parking lots, insufficient pedestrian facilities, and poorly planned development. Once solidly behind accommodating auto-oriented transportation needs, the public is now asking for more livable and holistic alternatives.
TRANSPORTATION DESIGN FOR COMMUNITIES is a two-day program that will present principles to help you create more livable places. Experts will share their tools for designing transportation facilities where pedestrians, bicyclists, transit customers, and motorists are all partners in mobility. The program will focus on community and street design solutions, economic and land development implications, land use regulations that support transportation projects, and the community involvement process.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND? This program is a must for local and state transportation planners, roadway design professionals, urban designers, architects, landscape architects, land use planners, transit planners and engineers, and land development professionals.
