Registration is now open for the NADO Research Foundation’s first virtual peer exchange on collaborative transportation and economic development planning. This peer exchange, to be held May 23 from 12 – 2 p.m. ET, will provide hands-on training on using economic analysis to sharpen transportation planning and decision-making, and ensure that infrastructure investments are supportive of regional economic prosperity.

Click here to register. Space is limited, as this will be a small and highly interactive virtual training. Participants will be asked to actively engage in discussions and activities, to attend the entire two-hour session, and to complete a brief exercise before the event. The draft agenda is available here.

This training is the first installment of ‘On the Road to Prosperity: Fostering Collaborative Transportation and Economic Development Planning,’ a series of five virtual peer exchanges exploring how transportation and economic development planning practitioners can work together to maximize the economic impact of infrastructure investments, grow businesses and jobs, and strengthen the livability and vitality of communities and regions.  These peer exchanges are conducted with support from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
