Urban Street Design Guide Training: OATS 2015

The Urban Street Design Guide is part of a growing movement among cities working to build sustainable and complete streets. Cities employing these principles are creating a new “DNA” for city streets. This training will reflect two main intents of the guide: 1) provide an overview of the principles that cities across the US are currently employing to beneficial effect, and 2) provide the recipes for both interim strategies as well as enduring design principles for creating complete streets. Cities using these principles and techniques are making their streets safe and inviting for people walking, shopping, parking and driving in an urban context. The training will be a combination of presentations and a charrette to allow attendees to apply some of the concepts in the Urban Street Design Guide to redesign an intersection in downtown Portland. This training will provide six professional development hours for ITE and AICP credits. Course has been reviewed and approved by the Oregon Chapter of ASLA for 6.0 Health, Safety and Welfare PDH for Oregon Registered Landscape Architects.
