CNU Atlanta is hosting another opportunity to expand your knowledge about active transportation - a Complete Streets Workshop. Online registration closes Tuesday February 14 so act quickly.

Complete Streets Design Workshop – Friday February 17
Streets play an important role in the health and livability of our communities.  However, many of our streets are designed primarily for cars, which diminishes the quality and safety of streets for other users walking, biking and taking public transportation. This workshop is tailored for engineers, architects, planners, policy makers and others involved in the design and construction of streets.  The goal is to learn how design, construction, and policy can be applied to improve transportation quality, convenience, safety and mobility for all users in a context sensitive approach.

On Friday February 17, CNU Atlanta will host a collaborative design workshop focusing on policies and design standards that support context sensitive street design and construction.  Led by Rick Hall, with Hall Planning and Engineering, attendees will learn how to apply the new ITE/CNU street design manual, Designing Walkable Urban Thoroughfares: A Context Sensitive Approach, to street design.  Additionally, Tom Weyandt, who now serves as the City of Atlanta’s Senior Policy Advisor for Transportation, will provide his perspective on how transportation policy and design can be applied to create more vibrant streets and communities.
