Excess impervious surface contributes to stormwater runoff, posing a threat to the environment and human health, and often overwhelming sewer systems. By incorporating Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) into the right-of-way, cities can manage stormwater and reap the public health, environmental, and aesthetic benefits of street trees, planters, and greenery in the public realm. With thoughtful design, GSI can bolster strategies to provide a safe and pleasant walking and biking experience, efficient and reliable transit service, and safer streets for all users.

 

Join NACTO, River Network, and Island Press for an up close look at the forthcoming Urban Street Stormwater Guide, and learn how to provide safe, functioning, and maintainable infrastructure that meets the unique needs and requirements of the transportation corridors and its various uses and users.

 

Panelists:

Corinne Kisner, Director of Policy and Special Projects, NACTO

Lacy Shelby, Director of Resiliency Planning and Management at New York City Department of Transportation

Shanti Colwell, GSI Program Manager, Seattle Public Utilities

Each year, 1.2 million people die from traffic fatalities, highlighting the need to design streets that offer safe and sustainable mobility choices for all people. Funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Global Street Design Guide (GSDG) offers the first-ever worldwide standards for designing city streets and prioritizing safety, pedestrians, transit, and sustainable transportation. GSDG is a timely resource that sets a global baseline for designing streets and public spaces and redefines the role of streets in a rapidly urbanizing world.

 

Join us for a discussion about how the tools and strategies defined in GSDG can be put to use in your city. The authors of GSDG will be joined by global experts, who have contributed global case studies to the Guide, to examine how urban streets can improve access, safety, mobility for all users, environmental quality, economic benefit, public health, and overall quality of life.

In 2014, Americans took 10.8 billion trips on public transit, the highest since the dawn of the highway era. But most of these trips are on streets that were designed to move private cars, with transit as an afterthought. On April 27, join Matthew Roe, Director of NACTO’s Designing Cities Initiative, and Dr. John Renne, Director of the Center for Urban and Environment Solutions (CUES) and Associate Professor in the School of Urban and Regional Planning at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida for a discussion about how NACTO’s new Transit Street Design Guide can help streets of every size be redesigned to create great transit streets, supporting strong neighborhoods and downtowns. An additional feature will spotlight on one of NACTO’s 21 member cities and how it has used these guidelines to implement innovative transit solutions. Check out the Transit Street Design Guide before the webinar.

This event will be co-hosted by Island Press, NACTO, Strong Towns, CUES at Florida Atlantic University and the Transportation and Land Development Committee of TRB.
