Transportation Summit - Nov 18-19, 2005 (Registration Closed)


This summit is now over. Read the 2005 Transportation Summit Report.

Join us for CNU’s third transportation Summit—a two day working meeting to advance new urbanist transportation planning standards. At the summit, we will discuss an ongoing context sensitive design manual. This is a joint effort of CNU, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE). The summit will be an opportunity to gather with other leading professionals to discuss transportation reform that will advance new urbanist street design and planning. The gathering of leading new urbanist transportation professionals offers both an overview on current projects that are changing transportation planning and engineering standards and offers an opportunity for CNU members to brainstorm new ideas. Kevin Klinkenberg of 180 Degrees Design is the local host for this summit. Objectives Format:

Day One will offer an overview and lessons learned from the CNU-ITE thoroughfares project, and other various presentations on changing transportation standards including green infrastructrue and pedestrian standards.

Day Two will be primarily small group working sessions led by CNU Transportation task force chairs Norman Garrick of the University of Connecticut, and Marcy McInelly of Urbsworks, Portland, Oregon. CNU board member Jacky Grimshaw of the Center for Neighborhood Technology will also faciliate. These groups will work towards advancing the practice and changing standards. Small group sessions will include work on: travel demand/volume, pedestrian issues, bicycles, green infrastructure, network design, parking.
