Spring CILT Class
Terri Musser returned to the Colorado Institute of Leadership Training to present to the Spring class on February 9th in Castle Rock. A diverse group of 40 leaders from across the state heard new ideas in transportation trends relating to the concept of Sustainable Mobility.
Key themes included:
- It will be difficult or impossible to build major amounts of new roadway capacity.
- Transportation policy, energy policy and climate change policy are inseparable.
- Higher energy prices are changing the structure of state and local economies.
- Our future mobility, economic vitality and quality of life depend on how we address these issues.
Following the presentation, which is available in pdf format below, a lot of discussion centered on transit oriented developments (TOD) and traditional neighborhood developments (TND) underway in Colorado.
