Transportation Bonanza—explore how schools can be the centers of community revitalization

The Michigan Association of Planning, in partnership with the Michigan Safe Routes to School Program, is launching its 4th annual Transportation Bonanza! The event will be held March 21, 2013, at the Radisson Hotel Lansing from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

This multidisciplinary event brings together professionals from planning, education, transportation, health, engineering, natural resource and environmental protection, architecture, landscape architecture, and more to connect around the topic of community building for health and accessibility.

Transportation Bonanza 4 builds on programs from the last three years, and highlights emerging issues, hot topics, and industry leaders who will inspire and challenge attendees. Sessions explore how to evaluate and implement equity measures into transportation planning and projects; how schools can help create “place”; successful techniques for community engagement; regional, state, and national policy issues affecting the SRTS program; and the role of coalitions driving some of these policy issues.

Hear from international transportation expert Todd Litman, Executive Director of the Vancouver Transit Policy Institute, who will provide the tools for implementing and evaluating equity in transportation in addition to assessing impacts of Complete Streets; Bill Lennertz, AIA, Executive Director of the National Charrette Institute, who will demonstrate how the charrette process can be used in transportation and school planning and projects; and Jason Jordan, APA Director of Policy and Government Affairs, who will give us an overview of MAP-21.  State-level school, transportation, planning, and governmental policy experts round out the agenda through breakout sessions.

Experience a full day of national experts and local perspectives, includes lunch, instruction, and refreshments.

Registration: $55
