Description

About: NOACA is pleased to bring ODOT’s Active Transportation Academy to Northeast Ohio. The Academy provides trainings and workshops to communities throughout Ohio. ODOT offers interactive trainings on programs, projects, and policies that can help your community reach its active transportation goals.

Description: This course provides instruction on how to implement a community traffic-calming program centered on neighborhood involvement and low-cost solutions or temporary test measures. It examines conventional solutions including engineering, encouragement, and enforcement, as well as innovative approaches like tactical urbanism and psychological traffic calming. The course is divided into four parts:

  1. Introduction: What is traffic calming?
  2. Toolbox: Traffic calming measures
  3. Program components: Components of a community-based traffic calming program
  4. Implementation: How to create a traffic calming program

What you will learn: Upon completion of this course, participants will have the knowledge and skills needed to implement a community traffic calming program. They will be familiar with the principles of traffic calming, its various measures, and aware of the resources and tools available to guide implementation.

Who should attend? Most workshops would benefit school district administration, teachers, staff, health professionals, parents, advocates, transportation professionals and volunteers.

Professional Development Credit: All workshops will provide attendees with public domain continuing education units (CEUs). CEUs from AICP/CM and Educator CEUs are being explored as well for the sessions and may be available for award in the future.
