Topic: Sustainable Transportation Planning in Hamilton: Outside In and Inside Out
Transportation Planning in Hamilton has evolved significantly over the past two decades to include a much greater focus on sustainable transportation. This change has been fueled, in part, by the implementation of some strategic projects that were considered bold or unconventional at their time of implementation.
For this event, our guest speaker Brian Hollingworth will share his experiences and insights on some of Hamilton’s more strategic transportation projects that have been implemented over the past two decades and the impacts they have had. Brian has a unique perspective on this topic having worked as in consultant in the City since 1996, and now taking on the position of Director of Transportation Planning and Parking for the City. Brian will also share the Vision for the new Transportation Planning and Parking Division which is tasked with implementing the Transportation Master Plan, adopted in August 2018.
