Metro and Project for Public Spaces Present an Urban Design Workshop

As part of
Metro’s 2009 Call for Project, we will be hosting a Transportation
Enhancements Activity workshop on Transportation and Urban Design
Workshop, to help applicants develop innovative projects for Los
Angeles County. Project for Public Spaces is a non-profit organization
that has a long history helping communities towards transformation –by
redeveloping the built environment.  They will be sharing
their projects, ideas, and approaches for planning and designing
transportation facilities – arterial roads, streets, bus stops, rail
stations – to support community economic development goals, ensure
social equity, promote mental and physical health, and to ease
congestion while strengthening residential neighborhoods. See more at www.pps.org.
