Heading to the Wisconsin Bike Summit this weekend? We’ll be in attendance all day Saturday, May 5 to talk about how, together, we can improve biking in Wisconsin.
You can hear from members of our Madison office about our work in Wisconsin and beyond in the following sessions:
Collaborative campaigns for Complete Streets and Planning
You have a policy…now what? This session talks about the practical steps that can be taken to ensure successful implementation of Complete Streets that consistently meet communities’ transportation and placemaking goals. It will include examples of the wide range of Complete Streets treatments, overview of design compromises and tradeoffs often required, roles for advocates and the public, and examples of how communities across the country have established repeatable processes to streamline and lower the cost of Complete Streets implementation.
