- Increase knowledge and understanding of practical applications of Complete Streets policies
- Explore available guidance alternatives and design criteria
- Learn how to develop and evaluate design alternatives for Complete Streets projects
In this inquiry-based webinar, two National Complete Streets Coalition workshop instructors model how they approach challenging or complex design problems that arise from balancing the needs of multiple modes and users in varying transportation and land use contexts. The objective of this webinar is not to provide design solutions, but rather to demonstrate approaches to and aspects of the solution process.
Participants observe and participate in the iterative process of developing design alternatives for a complete street in three different contexts. The instructors, both of whom have significant planning, design, and engineering implementation experience and professional credentials, will:
- Introduce the design issue(s) and its context
- Discuss key factors, considerations, and questions they would ask in approaching the problem
- Discuss and describe the specific flexibility within existing standards and guides that relates to this context, and show practical applications of this guidance in this context
- Demonstrate through their iterative discussion the decision-making process, including stakeholder engagement, warrants, hidden or lesser understood components of the decision-making process, and measuring performance
Due to the interactive nature of this webinar, an optional Q&A period has been scheduled from 4:00 to 4:15 p.m. ET; participants are encouraged to stay in the session for the Q&A.
