As funds for infrastructure development become increasingly limited, it is important that cities are making decisions that maximize the impact of each dollar spent. This means that cities have become more creative and paid more attention to approaches that not only improve the local economy, but also improve the health, and quality of life for their community members. In this webinar, experts from the Urban Land Institute, AARP, and City of Long Beach will discuss how active transportation can make a positive impact on the local community. Participants will:
Understand how to use data to prioritize infrastructure improvements that will have the safest and most cost-effective outcomes.
Learn how cities leverage funding (such as Measure M) to build a cohesive active transportation network.
Learn about positive impact that active transportation infrastructure and place making efforts, such as parklets and street decks, have on local businesses.
Learn about the impact active transportation has on real estate values.
Learn about the impact active transportation infrastructure has on health.
Gain tools and techniques to ensure that active transportation infrastructure is used to improve low-income communities without causing displacement.
