CNU hosts 2008 Transportation Summit Nov. 6-8 in Charlotte, NC

Congress for the New Urbanism

The Congress for the New Urbanism's annual Transportation Summit focuses on sustainable transportation networks in the ongoing effort to prove the benefits of a connected street network.

The Summit is a working meeting for CNU's interdisciplinary coalition of architects, engineers, planners, developers, elected officials, community activists, and others dedicated to advancing efforts to build, preserve, and redevelop sustainable pedestrian-friendly communities as alternatives to sprawl. The Summit is where key issues are addressed, new ideas debated, and solutions proposed.

Significant CNU projects will be highlighted, including the nationwide Highways to Boulevards initiative and CNU's work with the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) to create a context sensitive design guide dedicated to major thoroughfares in cities and towns.

The Transportation Summit is an opportunity to pool our experiences, advance our expertise and influence the work of the transportation-engineering mainstream.
