Complete Streets: Can They Be More?

CEU Accreditation: LA CES, 1.5; APLD, 1.5




Presented by: Stephanie Landregan, FASLA
Friday, February 8th - 1:30 - 3:00 PM

Course Description:

The Living Streets Manual will be reviewed and guidelines explored. "Living Streets" looks at ALL the functions a street should perform not just for automobiles. The multi-functions a street should be designed to perform include: as a natural system for storm water, as a social environment for interaction and community, as a traffic conduit for pedestrians, bicycles and autos. Incorporating natural systems can improve both the function, maintenance and the health of the street and community.

Landregan will provide examples of designs from the Living Streets guidelines, that include historical precedent and national and international examples of streets that include and incorporate ecological considerations, both social and environmental. The session will discuss the considerations and constraints within these projects, specific techniques that combine the infrastructural and aesthetic benefit. The session will also present examples and benefits from reclaiming, transforming and energizing streets as shared space.
