Bicycle Boulevard Planning & Design Guidebook and Workshop (ALTA)
For over a decade, Alta Planning and Design has been committed to making bicycling and walking convenient, comfortable, and fun transportation options in communities all around the world. In addition to helping communities develop comprehensive bicycle and pedestrian plans and effective encouragement programs, we also recognize the value of sharing our expertise on specialized non-motorized facilities with other professionals and active-transportation advocates.

For the past several months we have been coordinating with Portland State University's Initiative for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation to create a Bicycle Boulevard Planning & Design Guidebook and Professional Development Workshop. This guidebook and workshop will serve as a planning and design reference for urban and transportation planners, landscape architects, designers, engineers, advocates, and others involved with bikeway planning. Topics covered include route selection, design elements, stakeholder involvement, and maintenance.

The bicycle boulevard workshop will be held on May 14, 2009 at Portland State University. The workshop will be led by Alta Planning and Design Principal, Mia Birk and City Traffic Engineer for the Portland Bureau of Transportation Rob Burchfield, PE. In addition to in-class lecture and hands-on design activities that provide an understanding of bicycle boulevard fundamentals, participants will also enjoy an informative bicycle tour of bicycle boulevards and design features throughout Portland.
