The COVID-19 pandemic has layered a viral public health crisis on top of three pre-existing public health crises in U.S. cities: climate change, traffic fatalities, and racial injustice. Through their recent resource, Streets for Pandemic Response and Recovery, NACTO has documented and encouraged quick-build mobility projects and practices, in order to weather the acute crisis posed by COVID-19 and transition to a just, sustainable recovery. Our speakers will explore the various ways city transportation agencies have managed dramatic shifts in mobility in recent months, and dissect ways to make design and policy decisions rooted in equity.
Attending mayors will learn about recent projects and the principles behind them, then participate in a discussion of practices and process that can lead to just outcomes in their own communities.
