Join CNU's Experts in Portland and Help Undo Transportation Practices that Destroy Good Urbanism

Early registration For CNU's 2009 summit ends Thursday, so register now for discounted registration and hotel rates.*

Join CNU for a one-of-a-kind event uniting reform-hungry transportation engineers with experts in placemaking and walkable urbanism. Together, they created much-needed contemporary design guidelines for boulevards and avenues that enhance walkability, transit-use and neighborhood value, unlike typical high-volume arterials.

Now they’re focusing on getting the whole network right. And with your input, they’ll tackle the professional, regulatory and funding barriers that stand in the way of bringing great streets and sustainable networks to cities and towns like yours.

Summit Registration

Register now, lock in great savings and get ready to hear from Scott Bernstein of the Center for Neighborhood Technology, a leading urbanist and provider of sustainability metrics to the Obama Administration, as he explains how to counter many of the biases against connected street networks. Join CNU Board members Norman Garrick who will discuss the urban network’s role in improving emergency response and safety and Scott Polikov who is implementing CNU Street reforms in Texas and working to advance nationwide MPO reform.

This is your chance to advance the recently crafted Statement of Network Principles. This is a working document to help amplify and add detail to the Charter of the New Urbanism. Join the advanced level working groups that will identify the specific benefits of network planning, refine network principles, then present a refined statement to Portland’s Congressman and House Ways and Means member Earl Blumenauer on Friday November 6.

Enjoy educational tours of Portland by bike, foot, streetcar or transit and see first hand one of the most sustainable cities in the world.

Don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of groundbreaking discussions while engaging with top reform experts who bring value, sustainability and convenience to your community. Early registration ends October 15th, 2009.
