Implementing Complete Streets at the Local Level

June 27, 2018
8:30 amto4:30 pm

Hosted by Sustainable Jersey, Together North Jersey, North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority, Rutgers Bloustein School

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.  You will learn about:

– 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 resources available to support municipal efforts including NJTPA’s Complete Streets Technical Assistance Program

Location: Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, 33 Livingston Avenue, Room 369; New Brunswick NJ

Webinar: Cultural districts and institutions: suns or black holes?

June 27, 2018
2:00 pmto3:00 pm

Like the convenience of a webinar, but wish they could be more interactive? Join The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking for our upcoming Strategic Conversations on creative placemaking.

One of the first things that many people think about in creative placemaking is creating a cultural district or building a large cultural institution. While districts and institutions can become catalysts for community-wide creativity and revitalization, they can also absorb a lot of time, energy and resources that could be used effectively elsewhere in the community. Learn how creative placemaking can make it more likely that districts and institutions have a broader impact on their communities.
