"Happier, Healthier, Sexier, and Smarter: Transportation and the Secret of Life
Tuesday, January 10, 2012

6:00pm doors open, 6:30 - 8:00pm program
RSVPs required

Sustainable transportation is composed of strategic and thoughtful investments that help a community achieve its larger economic vitality, social equity, ecological diversity, quality of life, and other goals. Transportation is inseparable from land use planning, economic development, and even human health and happiness.
Although many sectors are embracing the challenges of long term sustainability, transportation planning lags behind with many policies and standards still rooted in a bygone era. Please join in a discussion about the compelling need and tremendous opportunities to plan, implement, and communicate sustainable transportation strategies for the nation and future.

About the SpeakerJeff Tumlin is a nationally known transportation planner, owner and principal for Nelson/Nygaard Associates in San Francisco, CA, and author of the forthcoming book, "Sustainable Transportation Planning: Tools for Creating Vibrant, Healthy, and Resilient Communities."

We'd like to thank NCPC for hosting our event. This forum is co-sponsored by the National Association of Realtors and the Downtown DC BID"
