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

Wetland Construction: Principles, Planning, and Design

August 22, 2018toAugust 24, 2018

As state and federal wetland mitigation standards evolve away from an acre-for-acre approach to a focus on replacing wetland functions, understanding the wetland’s “wet part” has never been more critical. This Rutgers University class serves as an introduction to the fundamentals of functional design and provides the means to rapidly assess the distribution of hydrology on your site and create useable hydrographs for presentation of your wetland design.

Location: Duke Farms, 1112 Duke Parkway West, Hillsborough, NJ 08844
