Planning on the Move: Hot Topics in Transportation is a workshop about transportation planning initiatives and projects throughout  Pennsylvania. PennDOT Secretary Leslie Richards and the PennDOT Program Center are working to make transportation planning a more collaborative process that supports community development goals. Brian Hare of PennDOT’s Program Center will discuss how the current  initiative, PennDOT Connects, reaches into community and transportation planning processes to initiate early dialogue and partnered decision-making about the kinds of transportation projects that will help a community achieve its vision. He will describe the various ways PennDOT is supporting this initiative internally and its outreach to local communities. Denny Puko of DCED has been a partner in shaping  PennDOT’s Planning Catalyst Team, a group tasked with improving transportation planning in Pennsylvania. He will speak about how communities can better prepare themselves to participate in formal transportation planning. Other presenters will discuss projects that  illustrate this collaborative approach.
