Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, Room 36933 Livingston Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ 08901
The concept of complete streets is to design streets for all users and all ability levels. The successful implementation of this concept requires a focus on context and the unique needs of the community. A variety of resources are available to assist municipal officials, staff, and the public in embarking on a connected and coordinated effort to advance implementation of complete streets at the municipal level.
This free workshop is a collaborative effort by the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA), Sustainable Jersey, the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University, the New Jersey Department of Transportation and Together North Jersey. The full day training opportunity is structured in four discrete sections, giving the participants the ability to make the most efficient use of their time by choosing the content that best meets their needs.
Workshop topics include: Crafting an effective complete streets policy; Integrating complete streets into the local planning process; Best practices in complete streets design; Project development, design and delivery; Building support through effective communications; Federal, state and other funding resources available to support municipal efforts, including; NJTPA’s Complete Streets Technical Assistance Program.
This workshop qualifies for 6.5 New Jersey State Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors Continuing Competency credits (CPC's) and 6.5 AICP Certification Maintenance credits (CM) through Rutgers University.
