The second annual Transportation Bonanza will be held December 8 and 9 in Lansing. This two-day event will feature national speakers and in-depth workshops on how to create healthy, walkable, connected, sustainable communities based on complete streets principles.
The Bonanza is a project of the Michigan Association of Planning, in partnership with the League, Michigan Safe Routes to Schools, Michigan Department of Community Health, and Michigan Chapter of the Congress for New Urbanism.
Local elected officials as well as planners, engineers and others are encouraged to attend. The second day of the conference will focus specifically on the CNU/ITE Recommended Practice Guidebook for designing walkable communities.
Save the date, registration will be open soon.
