Event Description

The looming cost of maintaining and building transportation systems in the U.S. is staggering, while overcoming decades of automobile-dominated sprawl has become a national imperative. Proper investment in and design of public infrastructure can create long-term value if aligned with urban development goals. Our current economic challenges offer opportunities to retool our federal transportation policies to lead local communities toward more sustainable futures.

Peter J. Park is the former Planning Director of Milwaukee and Denver. He will discuss approaches to infrastructure that are reshaping those cities in ways that enhance linkages between transportation and land use, demonstrate new possibilities for urban regeneration, and create places of lasting value.

Note:  This lecture is part of A Roadmap to Sustainable Infrastructure & Green Cities. No registration is required to attend the evening keynote lectures by Peter Park and Janette Sadik-Khan, but registration is required for all other conference sessions.
