Rail~Volution 2007 Call For Presentations - Deadline Is April 13th, 2007


Each year, Rail~Volution's National Steering Committee will develop a Conference Program that expands the "tools" available for building livable communities with transit. These sessions will explore new ideas, challenges and opportunities encountered by communities as a result of their continuing efforts to:
− Foster a regional dialogue on the connections between land use and transportation
− Implement/refine policies that are supportive of mixed-use and transit-oriented development
− Build a world-class transit system that is sensitive to the context of the communities it traverses
− Spur development and development opportunities supportive of walkable, transit-friendly places
− Unify support through the community and media for investment in transit/expansion of the initial system
− Design and redesign places for people
− Work with Federal and Local Governments and Private partners to get transit projects and livable communities built
− Promote sustainability for transit and development at the neighborhood, local and regional level

The conference offers core topics that consider the basics and best examples of transit oriented development and tools for effective community planning. The program will allow comprehensive coverage of the "fundamentals" of the Rail~Volution message. These workshops are led by a faculty of experts and veterans with public, private and activist perspectives in this diverse field. If you are an "old hand" at some aspect of building livable communities with transit, we would like to enlist your help in any of these "Core" community-building topics:

• Development of Policies and Plans for Livable Cities – Local and Regional Perspective
• Tailoring Transit Modes to Community Needs and Opportunities
• Community Building Partnerships- Bringing About Understanding and Cooperation
• Demand Management and Transportation Options for Livable Communities
• Understanding and Using Federal Legislation and Regulations
• TOD Principles, Design Guidelines and the Role of Parking in the Livable Community
• Financing Livable Communities
• Building Support: Community Activism
• Working with the Media: Effective Communications
