Building Healthy and Prosperous Communities


Meeting Description:
Metro areas of all sizes across the country are strategizing, developing, and implementing new ways to improve bicycling and walking in their regions. Over the last year, T4America worked with metro areas across the country to collect and document these stories, ideas, and strategies into a guidebook.
 
Join us on December 11th at 12 p.m. EST for a launch webinar where we’ll release Building Healthy and Prosperous Communities: How Metro Areas are Building More and Better Bicycling and Walking Projects and hear from some of three agencies featured in it.
 
  • Courtney Geary, Chattanooga-Hamilton County/North Georgia Transportation Planning Organization on how they created a new performance measures framework that helps prioritize multi-modal projects for funding. 
  • Jeff Pollack, Corpus Christi MPO on how they customized a Bicycle Mobility Network through accessibility planning and community engagement. 
  • Daniel Kaempff, Metro in Portland, Oregon on how they changed the design of walking and bicycling projects to encourage active transportation and keep people safe.
Rochelle Carpenter from the Greater Nashville Regional Council will moderate the conversation
