Moving Beyond the Automobile: Multi-Modal Transportation Planning

September 3, 2019

$65 – $75

Building a Better Bend announces its first lecture of 2015! The lecture is free and open to the public.

Title:  “Moving Beyond the Automobile: Multi-Modal Transportation Planning”
Presenter: Chris Comeau, CTP, AICP, Transportation Planner for City of Bellingham, Washington

Learn how Bellingham, Washington evolved from an auto-centric and roadway-based transportation planning program to one that is multi-modal, inclusive, flexible and concurrent. Comeau will share his experience based on more than twenty years of land use and transportation planning for city and county jurisdictions. He specializes in multimodal transportation policy and planning, striving to integrate transportation infrastructure and land use policy to create a balanced systems approach to urban and community planning. He currently manages the Multimodal Transportation Concurrency Program for the City of Bellingham.

Building a Better Bend has been bringing expert speakers to Bend for the last 11 years with a focus on:

  • Educating planners, real estate development professionals, architects, builders, engineers, elected and volunteer office holders, and the general public;
  • Positively impacting the quality of development and growth in Bend and the surrounding region;
  • Bringing expert lecturers in from outside the region who can bring innovative ideas as well as examples of things that have worked (or failed) in other areas; and
  • Creating a discussion on how to apply these lessons to our community.
