The webinar will be presented by Rachel MacCleery,  Larry Marcus, Daniel Ashworth, and Matt Lewis.  The speakers will provide a framework for a new way of thinking-a new vision for transportation professionals to create great streets and communities where people of all ages and abilities can thrive.

Sprawling, auto-centric development patterns following WWII caused people to want to drive through Main Streets instead of going to them. Auto-centric city streets cause congestion and crashes and encourage dependence on auto-transportation. The panel of speakers believe we need to steer clear of trying to build our way out of congestion with bigger, wider, and faster intersections and roadways. Instead, we need to focus on making streets safe for all modes of transport. Transportation professionals will learn about successful strategies to repurpose street space that accommodates all the various demands for use- cars, transit, parking, bikes, goods delivery, place-making.
