The Transport Hartford Academy is working with the CT Chapter of the American Planning Association and the CT Department of Transportation to plan a November 19th, Multimodal and Transit Summit.  The Summit is co-hosted by UConn and several participating UConn departments.  This summit includes topics for both transportation and development professionals, combined with an evening program for residents, citizen advocates, and intersectional topics.  Planners will be able to receive professional CM credits for attending.

The summit includes an exciting keynote luncheon and the evening social mixer with individual registration and many sponsorship levels.  Food and camaraderie is the cornerstone of a successful professional and community event.

Contact Laura Suroviak or Tony Cherolis (or call 860-247-3227) if you have any questions or suggestions for the Summit.

Summit Sessions and Topics

Multimodal transportation topics are inherently regional.  We can’t talk about commuter rail without including Springfield, Boston, NYC, and central Massachusetts.  Complete Streets and active transportation policies have been moving ahead in some cities faster than others, and the Summit will provide an opportunity to share best practices across the entire region.  Transit Oriented Development (TOD) concepts may be new along Connecticut’s knowledge corridor, but the definitely aren’t novel for NYC, New Jersey, and Boston.  This Summit includes presenters and topics from the entire Northeast Region.  Register now to save your seat!
