April Forum:

Transportation Planning Today For Tomorrow’s Technology

Will the chicken be crossing the road by foot, in a self-driving car or pedaling a bike?

The future of transportation is changing. From autonomous vehicles to investing in “great streets,” we can shape the planning today for our community’s future growth and technology.  Learn about the economic benefits of creating “great streets” that are walkable, bikeable, and likable. See how other communities have responded to growth (aka traffic) and their transportation solutions. Discover how demographic trends are shaping our needs. Alex Joyce, an urban planning expert, will cover all these topics and touch on the interplay between growth priorities and transportation investments. Join us to decipher how that chicken will cross the road in the future!
