Years of planning and engagement have contributed to Somerville’s resurgence—a pedestrian street, new businesses, and new housing all bring vibrancy to its downtown.
Webinar: Lessons Learned in Linking Land Use and Transportation (fee)
December 12, 2013
12:00 – 1:30 PM EST
Presented by the Institute of Transportation Engineers, this webinar will highlight the importance of local right-of-way preservation and thoroughfare plans in linking land use and transportation. The relationship between Complete Streets and transportation/land use will be examined, as well as lessons learned in Florida, Ohio, Georgia, and Colorado and their applicability to locations throughout the U.S.
As TOD gains momentum, accommodating people who want to live, work, and play near transit, “Complete Streets” has emerged to bolster TOD.
The APA recently released a Planning Advisory Service report on complete streets titled Complete Streets: Best Policy and Implementation Practices.
The authors provide an overview of complete streets, of what a complete streets policy should address, and the effects of its implementation.
