This webinar will introduce the concepts of Complete Streets and how to create streets that are safe and functional for all users. Those concepts start from an overview of the role of streets as public spaces and the various land use contexts and functions that streets need to provide in communities. Complete Streets approaches will be introduced, including how to identify place-based priorities and criteria, such as design speeds and non-motorized facility types appropriate for those contexts. The webinar will provide examples of real-world situations and strategies to address the typical planning and design issues encountered from individual street corners to system-level management.
This training is a high-level overview of the core concepts of Complete Streets and is ideal for those working in the fields of engineering, planning, architecture, land development, health, recreation, law enforcement, or elected officials. The webinar introduces the various topics, design approaches, and applicable reference guides that will be covered in greater detail during the full 6-hour training, which will be offered in the near future.
Please note – space for this webinar is limited, and local Florida agencies are being given priority!
This webinar is being provided at no cost, and will award 1.5 PDH’s for attending and completing the full session.
