Janette Sadik-Khan at the Antoinette & Vincent M. Dungan Lecture on Energy & the EnvironmentThis is a featured page

We're
pleased to announce that Janette Sadik-Khan, New York City's
Commissioner of Transportation, will be kicking off the 2010 LA
StreetSummit with a pre-summit talk on Thursday March 18th, at 7:30pm
at Occidental College's Keck Theater in Eagle Rock.


In
New York City, Commissioner Sadik-Kahn has overseen an unprecedented
transformation of streets. After generations of auto-centric
transportation planning, New York City streets are being re-purposed to
move and connect people over cars. Sadik-Khan has implemented numerous
popular and innovative projects--from the pedestrianization of Times Square to the construction of over 200 miles of bike facilities in just 2 years--all
of which are redefining streets as public places for people to utilize
and inhabit in better ways. Her success has gained her world wide
notoriety and she will be speaking at the 2010 StreetSummit to
ellaborate on her efforts.

Here you can watch Janette give some
background on how the streets transformation came about in NYC,
primarily from the realization that the only way New York could
continue to grow and thrive in the next 25 years was to minimize the
city's environmental foot print.
