We want to meet you!

“Filling potholes doesn’t ‘fix’ our transportation system, but simply paves over a system of highways designed for a 20th century California,” said Jeanie Ward-Waller, policy director of the California Bicycle Coalition, in a September 1 op ed piece in The Sacramento Bee. As transportation systems all across America transition from the concrete paved, car-oriented culture of the past, you are part of this exciting transformation! Join fellow Landscape Architecture and Transportation Professional Practice Network (LAT PPN) members in discussions of current issues at the ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO in Chicago this November.

Show us who you are! We invite you to participate: 

  1. Send us a proposal for a short talk about an issue concerning you for the Landscape Architecture and Transportation PPN meeting. Presentations can be about anything related to transportation, from complete streets and multi-modal transportation planning to green streets, erosion control, and ecological restoration. Submit a title, short summary paragraph, and brief outline for your slides (one to two words per slide) to Ellen Barth Alster at ellen.alster@pima.gov. Proposals are due by October 1, 2015.
  2. Send us 1-3 images about yourself and the work you do. Everyone attending the Annual Meeting has a voice that should be heard and we want to know more about you, our fellow PPN members. The images can be about anything: your favorite place, your daily commute, or your most frustrating transportation design challenge. Please send images (as JPEG files) by October 30, 2015 to the LAT PPN leadership team.

The Landscape Architecture and Transportation PPN meeting will take place on Saturday, November 7 at 9:15 AM. We look forward to seeing you in Chicago!

We welcome all questions and comments. Please contact Ellen Barth Alster (ellen.alster@pima.gov), LAT PPN Co-Chair, or Davie Biagi (davie@landscapeconsultantshq.com), LAT PPN Officer.
