How can we elevate our cities by creating streets that are not just transportation corridors, but also beautiful and memorable places? Urban planner and designer Victor Dover will share inspiring images and examples from the great cities and boulevards of history. He will showcase the specific design elements that add up to great, inviting streets and cities. He’ll challenge city transportation engineers to expand our own role – to move beyond signage, striping and bollards to thoughtfully create handsome streets that generate civic pride.
