San Francisco 2014
On October 22-25, 2014, NACTO will host its third annual Designing Cities conference in San Francisco, California. The Designing Cities conference convenes transportation leaders and practitioners from across the country to discuss key trends in urban street design and transportation policy. Themes will include re-imagining rights-of-way, economic benefits of sustainable streets, bike and car sharing, pedestrian and bicyclist safety, and strategies to create public space using low-cost, temporary materials.
This four-day conference will be composed of a series of breakout sessions, workshops, and interactive forums to both showcase successful projects that have been implemented in urban areas, and to foster collaborative discussions of innovative transportation trends. San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency staff and local partners will host “walkshops” that take their peers on tours of local projects, including recently completed cycle tracks, public plazas, and parklets.
Now is the time to build safe, sustainable communities through reimagining and reinventing streets.
