The National Transit Institute (NTI) is presenting a FREE course ($650 for consultants and contractors) entitled “Transportation and Land Use” in Seattle, Washington on November 17-19 2009.

This three-day course is designed to help practitioners develop a multimodal transportation system that supports desired land uses and help shape land uses to support the transportation system. The course will assist participants in understanding the relationships between transportation and land use; the processes through which transportation and land use issues can be jointly addressed; and implementation steps to ensure that transportation and land use systems are designed in a compatible, mutually supportive manner.

The course is targeted towards transit operators, metropolitan planning organization staff, Federal employees, state department of transportation planners and transportation specialists, city and county engineers and planners, resource agency staff and consultants. Secondary audience includes: elected officials, regulatory agency staff, local zoning officials, site designers, citizen activists, developers, media representatives, and business leaders.

If you are interested in attending, please follow this link http://ntionline.com/CourseInfo.asp?CourseNumber=ID802 and register on line.

NTI will also be offering a Transit Oriented Development (TOD) course in December, (exact dates are to be determined - http://ntionline.com/CourseInfo.asp?CourseNumber=TPE20) in Seattle. It is recommended that the Transportation and Land Use course be taken before the TOD course.

Seating is limited for this course, so register early. For further information, please contact Ned Conroy at 206-220-4318, or email ned.conroy@dot.gov.
