Building safer streets for healthier neighborhoods
Safety, liability, and emergency response are often barriers to the implementation of successful livable streets. This 3-hour special session examines the specific concerns that engineers, lawyers, and fire officials have with livable streets, and discusses how to overcome them. Learn how the principles of the New Urbanism can be used to provide a broader, more comprehensive approach to health and life safety, and learn the latest news from CNU’s Emergency Response & Street Design Initiative, which has engaged fire marshals and new urbanists to find common solutions that provide great streets.
THIS SESSION IS FREE AND OPEN TO ALL.
