Ash Community Speaker Series -- How Transportation Moves Through Local Government

Date: 

Friday, October 4, 2019, 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Location: 

Ash Center Foyer, 124 Mount Auburn St., Floor 2, Suite 200N

Join Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative’s summer fellows Ben Notkin and Rafael Marengoni, for a conversation on their work with cities looking to revolutionize and modernize their transportation systems. The implementation of a new transportation system requires rigorous analysis of alternative configurations and their various effects on the built environment. Without a collaborative process with the public, however, this technical review is incomplete. Richmond and Saskatoon represent cities in different phases of implementation and the necessary components to a healthy process.
