Streetscape Design to Improve Walking and Cycling
Learn how thoughtful streetscape design improves the function, enhances safety, and boosts the aesthetic and ecological qualities of a street. This session explores best practices in streetscape design and how two different cities approach issues of policy, zoning and retrofitting. In Burnaby, B.C., comprehensive guidelines support a broad range of outcomes to integrate pedestrian, cyclist, transit and driving networks with the sustainable storm water, urban forestry, street lighting, public art and place-making functions of accessible, complete streets. Learn about the multi-disciplinary process that built these guidelines, which are based on existing plans and policies that support environmental, social and economic sustainability. San Francisco’s WalkFirst initiative aims to improve pedestrian safety. Learn about the methodology developed to prioritize retrofitting projects in order to create the greatest benefit within the constraints of limited funding.
