Scott Doyon will discuss the business of making a great neighborhood, and making places, where we can accommodate all modes. This keynote speech will address the need for our urban municipalities to rethink urban street and center design to accommodate the human versus the automobile.  Scott will highlight how all practitioners can make simple changes to their design strategies and communications approach to accommodate all stakeholders—and show how it works.
