City Of Ann Arbor 2013 Sustainable Ann Arbor Forums: Planning for Change In Our Community: Transportation Options
This event was held on April 18, 2013 at Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
This fourth and final session in a series of monthly discussions centers on transportation options, including the transition to more fuel-efficient modes of transit, such as electric vehicles, and non-motorized planning efforts in the community. Building on the public forums from last year, the 2013 forums will focus on planning for change in the community.
A think tank of local stakeholders, including University of Michigan faculty, representatives from community organizations, and city commissioners, join City of Ann Arbor staff and the public to discuss local sustainability concepts and efforts--past, present and future. The presentations will discuss conditions that are changing in the community and past and potential actions to adapt to change. Each program will also include tips for individual actions that residents may take.
Speakers include: John Hieftje, Mayor, City of Ann Arbor; Erica Briggs, Project Manager, Clean Energy Coalition; Nathan Voght, Economic Development Specialist, Washtenaw County Office of Community and Economic Development; Eli Cooper, Transportation Programs Manager, City of Ann Arbor; Michael Benham, Strategic Planner, AATA
