||On November 8, Jim Charlier gave a presentation at the annual Rail-Volution (“Building Livable Cities with Transit) Conference, held this year in Chicago.|
The panel was organized by Paul Zycofsky who works at the Local Government Commission (LGC) in Sacramento. The session topic was: “Improving the Pedestrian Environment in Auto-Oriented and Low-Income Areas.” Paul provided an overview presentation of pedestrian issues and opportunities in low income areas, and described a couple of LGC’s successful projects dealing with these issues in California. Jim followed up with a discussion of “Evaluation Tools” for distinguishing pedestrian-oriented places from auto-dominated environments.
