More Ways to Work Across Disciplines

APBP members abounded at the American Society of Landscape Architects conference in Denver, as attendees, speakers, exhibitors and booth visitors. Among them was APBP member and planner Jeff Jacobberger of Civic Enterprise in Los Angeles who spoke about “Take Back the Boulevard: Grassroots Complete Street Efforts”. The inter-disciplinary panel challenged the audience to engage the public and also “dare to draw what you want.”

APBP’s banner featuring the Indianapolis Cultural Trail drew its designer APBP member Kevin Osburn of Rundell Ernstberger Associates in Indianapolis to the APBP booth for an interesting "how to" conversation with other booth visitors.

“Ask a Traffic Engineer: Street Design 101” was a fascinating session for ASLA attendees. It began with a review of the manuals engineers use, then covered topics like curb radii, crossing warrants, roundabouts, complete streets, safety vs. risk, liability and how to document engineering judgment. One speaker commented he’d enjoyed speaking with landscape architects, adding “The more we learn about other disciplines, the better job we can do.”

APBP’s (heavy) display books were gladly scooped up by an LA from Ocean Springs, Miss. “So glad you’re here” was a common refrain at the APBP booth. APBP eagerly visited booths showcasing members’ streetscape and bicycle parking products. Hope to see you next November at ASLA 2015 in Chicago at booth #706.

Local Coordinators Needed For Survey

Help APBP develop a new initiative, the Local Bicycle Pedestrian Coordinator (LBPC) Program, by taking the LBPC survey. The LBPC Program will provide a support platform for LBPCs with guidance on best practices, as well as professional development.

The program (and survey) includes anyone working within, or officially designated to work for, local or regional government and whose duties include bike/ped planning, design, engineering, or enforcement—regardless of your job title.
Questions? Contact APBP Fellow Kevin Lucas.

Tell Us What You Know About Bike Corrals

Bikes, e-bikes, scooters, pedestrians, sidewalk cafes, street furniture – where’s a body to walk? This question crossed my mind on the walk to the ASLA conference at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. How I wished the bicycle parking vendors at ASLA would do an intervention! Are bike corrals the answer when the sidewalk is nearly impassable and the need for bike parking is so clear?
What do you know about bike corrals? Share your knowledge, policies and photos with APBP. We’re eager to learn from you! Share your work via
