Bicycle and Pedestrian-Friendly Site Design
Monday, March 31, 2014
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
Room 180, Native American Student & Community Center (NASCC), PSU
Instructor: Lynn Weigand, Ph.D.
Current site design practice typically assumes that users will arrive by car, often creating hostile conditions for those arriving on foot or by bicycle. This 1-day course teaches participants how to apply human factors in rethinking and redesigning commercial, civic, office, and light industrial sites so they are attractive, safe and convenient for pedestrians and bicyclists. The course will include opportunities for interaction and application of concepts in small group exercises.
Topics will include:
- Access Management
- Building orientation
- Parking lot design
- Pedestrian access
- Bicycle access and bicycle parking
- Building design – exterior and interior
Registration: The fee for this professional development course is $295. This includes morning coffee, snacks, lunch, and course materials. The fee does not include travel, lodging or other meals while in Portland.
Registration is currently open. Registration deadline is March 17, 2014.
Continuing Education Credits: This 1-day workshop will provide approximately 7 hours of training which equals to 7 CMs or 7 PDHs. IBPI applies to the AICP for Certification Maintenance credit for each course. We will provide an attendance certificate to those who document their professional development hours.
Who Should Attend: Urban and transportation planners, landscape architects, designers, engineers, advocates, and others with responsibility for designing, planning, and/or building pedestrian facilities in the public right of way.
