Dan Burden, an international expert on walkability, will lead a workshop on how physical design and walkability are at the core of creating and sustaining 21st century communities. See firsthand why Time Magazine listed him as one of the six most important Civic Innovators in the World. Participants will walk away with an expanded tool kit to draw from to build healthier neighborhoods and more complete streets through progressive physical design, improved connectivity and better traffic controls. Participants will better understand the impact of transportation and land use patterns on a local community in terms of safety and quality of life, including the effect of physical design on local economies. As part of this session, attendees will set visionary yet achievable goals and identify practical, high-impact changes that can be implemented within their community.

At the conclusion of this seminar:
1. Participants will set achievable visionary, yet pragmatic, community-building visions and goals.
2. Participants will be able to build healthier neighborhoods, intersections, crossings, Complete Streets, provide improved access controls, street connectivity, and emergency response times.
