From Plan to Practice: Helping Transportation Policies Hit the Streets

Date/Time: August 27, 2013, 12:00pm1:00pm
Location: Free online webinar

In the state of Washington, roughly 99 percent of transportation funding supports road construction for vehicular travel. To ensure a more equitable use of public space, communities are implementing "complete streets" policies. These policies promote the design and construction of roadways for all types of users, including bicyclists, public transportation, and pedestrians of all ages and abilities. "Complete streets" policies provide a unique opportunity for public health to collaborate with new sectors to address chronic disease and injury prevention.

In this discussion, Brendon Haggerty, MURP, will explain what "complete streets" are and why they are gaining popularity across the country. He will also share examples from both urban and rural settings that demonstrate successful approaches to health planning.
