2016 APBP Board of Directors Candidate Statement

Mike Tremblay, P.E.
Transportation Engineer,  Howard Stein Hudson

I have been a member of APBP since 2013 and an advocate for complete streets design since working with Daniel Dulaski and Peter Furth at Northeastern University, where I led a capstone group that was tasked with creating a multimodal solution along Broadway in South Boston, an aging downtown street with no bike accommodations, a lack of pedestrian amenities, and a cross-section designed for streetcars that have given way to double parked cars.  We created a concept that proposed a two-way separated bike lane, floating bus stops, green space, and patio seating for the corridor’s growing number of restaurants.  This exercise fostered a passion for improving streets so that all visitors can use and enjoy them.


Since starting my professional career at Howard Stein Hudson in 2011, I have attended dozens of APBP webinars and attended two NACTO conferences, which have helped me broaden my toolbox for multimodal solutions for roadways of all types.  I hope to continue to expand my knowledge as well as educate others, particularly those in town and city government and the public at large, of the benefits smart transportation design can provide. 


What I would bring to Board
In addition to my passion for complete streets design, I have experience serving on professional boards.  This November, I will be finishing my last of three one-year terms on the board of the Young Professionals in Transportation, Boston Chapter, where I served as Vice Chair for Communications for one year and as Vice Chair for Sponsorship for two years.  I hope to use the knowledge I have gained serving on the YPT Boston board to bring ideas for events and webinars for APBP, as well as help to foster local chapters of APBP.

My vision for APBP
APBP is a leader in educating planners, engineers, and municipal officials as to the mobility, economic, and health benefits of complete streets and the many ways they can be applied to our city and towns.  While it seems that the transportation planning and engineering fields are largely accepting of the principles of smart design today, many people that have the power to implement these improvements are unaware of the benefits for communities.  APBP should continue to share the newest ideas and design concepts to transportation professionals while exploring ways to reach out to those who are not transportation professionals so that these ideas can be accepted in cities throughout the country.
