    • Why we need Sustainable Transportation Networks… …and how to implement them CNU 17 Denver June 13, 2009
    • Why do we need Sustainable Transportation Networks?
    • Why do we need Sustainable Transportation Networks? Because… they create the basis for and support livable urban environments and sustainable forms of transportation.
    • What we want – Key New Urbanist Goals  Compact Urban Form  Pedestrian-oriented Public Realm  Balanced Transportation for all Modes  Diverse and Balanced Land Use Patterns  Walkable Centers and Neighborhoods  Focused and Resource Conscious Growth  Respectful Integration into Natural Systems
    • What we got – A Network in Crisis  Since 1980 VMT outpaced population growth by 3:1  Congestion • 4.2 billion lost hours • 2.9 billion gallons of wasted fuel • Amounting to a $78 billion annual drain  Transportation accounts for 33% of green house gases  With strained budgets it is becoming cost prohibitive to mitigate through adding capacity  Ignores the network function of local streets  Poorly accommodates trips by non-vehicular modes  Transit accommodation is often just an afterthought  Is not supportive of New Urbanist goals
    • What we want Urban Advantage US29H250 Project – Charlottesville & Albemarle County, Virginia Alternative Future with Potential “Full” Network
    • What we got Urban Advantage US29H250 Project – Charlottesville & Albemarle County, Virginia Hydraulic Road - Existing Conditions
    • What we want Urban Advantage US29H250 Project – Charlottesville & Albemarle County, Virginia Alternative Future with Potential “Full” Network
    • What we got Urban Advantage US29H250 Project – Charlottesville & Albemarle County, Virginia US 29 - Existing Conditions
    • What we go – A Poor Network Lack of a complete network concentrates all traffic on US29 – Regional through – Regional commute – Local commute – Local shopping and – Local within the area Existing Street “Network” US29H250 Project – Charlottesville & Albemarle County, Virginia
    • What we need – A better Network  A Network of multimodal, low speed streets for local service  Allows US 29 to serve longer regional trips Initial Street Network US29H250 Project – Charlottesville & Albemarle County, Virginia
    • What we need – A better Network  Potential for a finer grain network of streets  Support transition from T-3: Suburban to T-5: Urban Center Potential Future Street Network US29H250 Project – Charlottesville & Albemarle County, Virginia

    • What we need  System-based (vs. facility-based) application of CSS: Smart Growth Conventional Planning
    • Why we need Sustainable Transportation Networks  To supports a drastic reduction of VMT through increased mode choice  To Bring to the regional scale successful New Urbanist concepts
    • Today’s Session • Network and Transit (William Lieberman) • Network and Safety (Wes Marshall) • Network Performance Measures (Jeffrey Tumlin) • Network and Emergency Response (Danny Pleasant) • Virginia’s Secondary Street Legislation (Nick Donohue) Each Presentation followed by brief Q & A • Panel Discussion with Audience Participation • Recent CNU Efforts with Policy Makers • Continue Discussion at Saturday Network Salon
