Join this APBP (Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals) webinar to examine the current state of the practice for complete streets. Topics in this session will include: · How support for complete streets is strengthened as collaboration with public health, transit, and other partners increases · A comparison of existing policies and how they match up to guidelines from the National Complete Streets Coalition · Examples of best practice at the local and state level The webinar will include a case study of Charlotte, N.C. The City of Charlotte’s complete streets policy preceded and informed North Carolina’s state complete streets policy. Learn about Charlotte’s award-winning Urban Streets Design Guidelines, an outstanding example of complete streets planning and design, and how the city is implementing requirements for developers to complement the use of public funds. Presenters are Stefanie Seskin of the National Complete Streets Coalition and Mark Cole, Design Section Manager, City of Charlotte.
