Upcoming Workshops

 

In May and June 2019, the North Carolina Department of Transportation will deliver six workshops around the State to focus on Collaborative Approaches to Advance Complete Streets. The workshops, which will be delivered by the UNC Highway Safety Research Center, VHB, and Ramey Kemp & Associates, are intended to bring together a diverse group of stakeholders to focus on building support for complete streets projects.

 

As communities across the State seek to implement NCDOT’s Complete Streets Policy, these workshops will be an opportunity to share valuable information about the policy and how different stakeholders can help support its implementation.

 

These free, one-day workshops are intended to:

  • Engage a diverse audience of State and local staff, community organizations and stakeholders, and decision-makers on the topic of Complete Streets
  • Establish relationships between these organizations to build support for complete streets projects
  • Equip participants with the tools and information they need to more effectively engage in transportation decision making

 

These workshops will be held in the following communities between May and June 2019. Click the link below to learn more and register for the workshops.

 

The following individuals should attend the workshop:

  • Planners, engineers and policy makers working for State, regional, and local agencies
  • Elected officials
  • Community, advocacy and non-profit organizations working to improve their communities through health, safety, and livability initiatives

 

Workshops will begin at 10:00am and conclude by 4:00pm. Participants will receive a working lunch during the day. If you have questions, please contact Dan Gelinne of the UNC Highway Safety Research Center (gelinne@hsrc.unc.edu, 919-475-3658).

 

History of Complete Streets Training in NC

From 2013 to 2014, the North Carolina Department of Transportation held 24 two-day training courses to provide detailed information about implementing its Complete Streets Policy to State and local engineers and planners. These training courses followed a series of four regional workshops held in late 2012. These interactive training sessions described the purpose of NCDOT’s Complete Streets Policy and provided detailed information about specific steps that can be taken to incorporate Complete Streets into a variety of projects at various stages in the planning and design process. Please visit the Resources page to see materials that were presented in the trainings and regional workshops.
