Whether you need a compelling case-statement for your Chamber of Commerce, a powerful presentation to persuade your politicians, or a two-day technical training for your transportation staff…we can help you put together the perfect package.

Toole Design Group (TDG) staff can develop training classes and courses on every aspect of planning, engineering and urban design, including network development, Complete Streets, traffic calming, and the integration of land use and transportation…all with a focused bicycling and walking lens. Each step of the planning process, every element of a walkable and bicycle-friendly community, and the intricacies of moving a project from concept through design to implementation can be presented in an informative class or course.

For example…

Ian Lockwood offers a comprehensive Staff/Council/Commission training that essentially brings the content of all those expensive and time-consuming conferences to you. In the course of one- to two-days, he will custom build an informative, thought-provoking and enjoyable program to inspire city staff and elected officials – perhaps helping to solve a particular problem or issue in your community as part of the process.

Seattle-based Michael Hintze helped develop the ActiveTrans Prioritization Tool (APT) that helps focus the project selection process on those projects that will really make a difference. Developed under the auspices of the National Cooperative Highway Research Program, the tool comes to life with training from TDG staff.

Ernie Boughman, from our Spartanburg, SC office, is active with his state chapter of the American Planning Association. As part of his commitment to professional development in the field, he offers courses on Ethics and Project Management that are essential skills for the work we do. He would be happy to share this knowledge with you.
