“Transform transportation” is the Vision of the Broward MPO 2035 Long Range Transportation Plan. The Plan’s success is dependent upon public-private partnerships to transform Broward County through transit-supportive, pedestrian-friendly redevelopment. The Broward MPO will present real-life examples of collaboration
with the public, and coordination with local municipalities and the private sector. The presentation will instruct planners how to develop partnerships that lead to citizens and stakeholders
“owning” plans and taking the lead in implementation. Transformation projects include the City of Oakland Park’s Main Street and Fort Lauderdale Downtown Development Authority’s
The WAVE Streetcar and Urban Oasis projects.
