Speaker event: Win-Win Transportation Solutions with Todd Litman
Planning to help the economy, benefit the environment and improve our communities
Join Greenwise Joint Venture for two FREE events on Wednesday, June 13.
The topic is transportation and the messenger is Todd Litman.
TOPIC: Learn about cost-effective and feasible tools we can use to solve traffic, mobility, and safety issues to build healthier communities.
International transportation guru and planner Todd Litman shows us ways we can solve these transportation problems, regardless of uncertainties about global warming, political interests, or other environmental and social impacts.
This free event will fill up fast.
Noon–1:30 p.m., Wednesday, June 13
SACOG Board Room, 1415 L Street, Suite 300, Sacramento
TOPIC: Transportation planners often treat vehicle movement as an end in itself. Sustainable transportation planning focuses on access, which can be improved by reducing the need to travel altogether, through land use management and forward-thinking policies.
