Regional Planning Mini Conference
Spend a day learning tactics and tools you can use to shape a greater Detroit though transportation funding and planning. We’re bringing in experts on scenario planning, MAP-21, performance metrics and cargo-oriented development to help us work together toward a better transportation future for metro Detroit. With several sessions to choose from, you can tailor your experience to meet your interests and needs.
5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m.
Join city staff and other community members for TAP into Possibilities, a workshop designed for residents who are interested in how TAP (Transportation Alternatives Program) funding can help their communities.
