REVIEW: 2013 Complete Streets Forum

 

Dandyhorse has a great re-cap of the 2013 Complete Streets Forum:

Hundreds of practitioners, professionals and advocates gathered for the 2013 Complete Streets Forum on Monday May 27, 2013, at Toronto’s Hyatt Regency Hotel. This sixth annual event was hosted by The Toronto Centre for Active Transportation TCAT, a project of the Clean Air Partnership CAP.

Each year, the forum brings together delegates from diverse sectors, from engineering, urban design, and transportation planning, to policy makers, cycling advocates and emerging student leaders. Participants came from the Greater Toronto Hamilton Area GTHA and beyond, and while diverse in expertise, share a common vision – to improve our urban communities by creating better cycling and pedestrian environments.

Last week, the Toronto Coalition for Active Transportation and the Clean Air Partnership hosted speakers and guests from all over the North America at the 2011 Complete Streets Forum.

The goal of the 2011 Complete Streets Forum is to explore best practices, share ideas and success stories, and showcase research and technical solutions on how to better plan and design complete streets that will embrace and protect cyclists and pedestrians while accommodating all road users, including transit and cars.

We invite everyone who is working to improve our communities, cities, and urban landscape to join us in this important conversation. We all need to get around – we’re all in this together.

Yvonne Bambrick, a Toronto Urban Cycling Consultant (and formerly of the Bike Union) took some great photos of the Forum (and the infrastructure bike tour that also took place as part of the Forum), and has graciously allowed us to share some with you.  The captions below are also by Yvonne.
