Planning for bike-friendly communities is becoming more common in major cities, suburbs, and small towns across the country. Everyday decisions by planners, engineers, and others affect how safe and convenient it is to bike for recreation or transportation. The seminar, a condensed version of LIB’s Summer 2009 four-week University of Illinois-Chicago urban planning course, will familiarize attendees with car/bike interactions, relevant national standards, best practices, planning tools, related “political” issues and policy techniques, tips on available funding sources, and implementation strategies.
Feb 3, 8:30-11am
Illinois Terminal, 45 E. University Ave, 4th floor
