Transportation Design for Communities was a two-day program held in May of 2006 that presented principles to help create more livable places. Experts shared their tools for designing transportation facilities where pedestrians, bicyclists, transit customers, and motorists are all partners in mobility. The program focused on community and street design solutions, economic and land development implications, land use regulations that support transportation projects, and the community involvement process.

The Transportation Design for Communities program was hosted by the Center for Quality Growth and Regional Development and the Georgia Institute of Technology and sponsored by Glatting Jackson Kercher Anglin Lopez Rinehart and others.
