Data collection is key to developing and delivering strong projects. But data collection alone isn’t enough to change the status quo on city streets. Doing this requires deliberately applying data to support project evaluation, community engagement, and public communications. In this session, get a behind-the-scenes look at the data-driven metrics, methods, and messaging that cities are using to move innovative street designs forward and win people over in the process.
This session will cover how to use data to reprioritize projects through an equity lens, how to build a robust project evaluation program, and how data has effectively changed conversations and won over even the most challenging candidates. After hearing from panelists, you’ll apply what you learned by outlining how to change a project evaluation process or use data to steer conversations about street design in a new direction.
Session Format: Presentations with audience Q&A and storyboard activity
