Webinar, Livability in the Mid-Atlantic Region

Livability in the Mid-Atlantic Region


DATE: Jun 9, 2011
TIME: 12:00 PM –1:30 PM (EDT)
PRESENTER: Harrison Rue
PLACE: Webinar

The mid-Atlantic region is rich with both historic and current examples of livability in practice. From small towns to busy Main Streets, rural roadways to suburban highway retrofits, regional visioning to neighborhood traffic calming, creative transportation solutions have enhanced community livability.

While new U.S. federal interagency initiatives have increased policy support and funding for livability, there has been a long tradition of integrated plans and effective strategies at the state, regional, and local level, under a variety of livability-related ‘brand names.’

Join ICF to explore several examples of successful plans, policies, and projects at a variety of scales.
