Webinar Series Presents >>
Streets as Places
November 21, 2012 @ 2:00PM - 3:30PM ET
ContextSensitiveSolutions.org is pleased to present a webinar on creating "Streets as Places," strategies for improving transportation and land use to create destination streets and quality public spaces.
This free webinar is brought to you by FHWA, in partnership with the Project for Public Spaces, and INDUS Corporation. The webinar will be on Wednesday, November 21, 2012, from 2:00 - 3:30 PM ET.
This webinar will focus on opportunities to create streets that are not only good for mobility, but are also public spaces and destinations in their own right. Speakers will present case studies that range from revitalized Main Streets, street plazas and parklets, and flexible street designs that allow for festivals and celebrations. Across the country, communities are realizing the value of vibrant streets and districts that support local commerce and culture. This webinar will focus on how planning for streets as places—in the right context—can also improve traditional performance measures (safety, throughput and travel time) as well.
