The session will permit attendees to
- Become familiar with Complete Streets principles and how they change with local context;
- Learn about guidance available regionally, nationally and internationally to supplement and advance Complete Street designs;
- Use interactive group design exercises to allow participants to gain experience using Complete Streets principles and other available guidance to achieve multimodal streets that provide a comprehensive network of transportation choices to all users.
The session will include a site visit in the neighbourhood so be prepared for walking outside. Other sessions of this training opportunity will be provided in Ottawa in October and in Calgary in February.
Alta’s day‐long Complete Streets training program will include a review and discussion of design elements and guidance from relevant Canadian examples. The review and discussion of Complete Streets will be supplemented by guidance from regional, national, and international sources in order to provide a comprehensive overview of best practices relevant to local context. (Think Complete Streets 2.0). Specific topics related to the local context will be selected to build a workshop tailored to design opportunities and challenges within Canada.
