Pre-Registration Open: NADO Virtual Peer Exchange on Transportation and Economic Development

In This Article:

Pre-registration is now open for the NADO Research Foundation’s third virtual peer exchange on collaborative transportation and economic development planning.  This peer exchange, to be held on September 26 from 12:30-3:00 pm ET, will explore how transportation and economic development practitioners can work together to develop shared visions, goals, and strategies that result in coordinated planning efforts and infrastructure investment that supports regional prosperity.  The event will look at four specific aspects of the transportation and economic development planning processes—the vision, goals and strategies, project-level work, and performance measurement—providing approaches, best practices, and interactive exercises to help participants collaborate across disciplines, effectively translate economic development concepts in transportation plans and vice versa, partner on implementation, and hold each other accountable for results.

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 2.5-hour session, and to complete a brief exercise before the event. The draft agenda is available here (PDF).

This training is the third 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).
