WEBINAR: Designing Road Diets as a Tool for Walkability and Community Revitalization

Thursday, July 14
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
CM|1.5 Approved (live attendance)

A growing number of communities are using road diets to make neighborhoods more walkable, to create complete streets, and to slow down traffic as part of other streetscape and revitalization projects.

Join the Maryland Department of Planning and the Smart Growth Network on Thursday, July 14, at 1:00 p.m. EDT as Dan Burden, Director of Innovation and Inspiration for Blue Zones LLC, returns to examine the essential design features of road diets, as well as how to design and operate them for walking, bicycling, driving and freight and emergency response movement, illustrating what works best and why.

The presentation follows Burden’s recent Smart Growth Network webinar on roundabouts. Burden coined the term “road diet” in 1996 and has been involved in popularizing and implementing the concept across the country since then.

Participants of the live webinar are eligible for 1.5 AICP CM credits (live attendance required). To register complete and submit the form below.

If unable to attend, the recording will be posted at http://smartgrowth.org/ after the live program.
