2 hrs. Webinar

Level: Intermediate

Item#: RV-W013024

SME: Rumanda Young, Ph.D.

This is a live, repeat presentation of a webinar that was originally offered on 04/18/2023 and 08/29/2023. Attendees of the previously offered presentations, RV-W041823 and RV-W082923, will not receive CEU for attending the 01/30/2024 presentation.
This two-hour webinar introduces the urban design concept of corridor planning which focuses on the design concepts of “linkage”, “movement”, and “place-making”. Corridors are pathways that link or connect places with economic, cultural, natural, or historic features while allowing movement through both transportation infrastructure and/or natural infrastructure. This webinar explores the various scales (regional to highly local) and design intent of corridor planning. The webinar also introduces new corridor urbanism practices that introduce multi-modal mobility options and socio-economic considerations focused to improve equitable access.
