The Congress for New Urbanism's Project for Transportation Reform will host a three-day annual summit, Oct, 1–3, in New York City, bringing together planners, designers, engineers, and public officials committed to creating and advancing transportation standards and policies that support urbanism and promote equity and equitable development.
The summit will focus on the interaction between equity and transportation and how we can redefine transportation standards to support safe, vibrant, and equitable streets.
According to CNU, aligning transportation and land use is critical for revitalizing distressed communities.
The summit will explore the following question: how to revitalize corridors in distressed communities and how to build great, beautiful and equitable streets?
