Green Parking, Sustainable Urban Mobility and Placemaking (CM | 1.5)
September 13, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
86% of Americans drive to work (with an average trip distance of less than 20 miles), 75% drive alone, and have done so pretty consistently over the past 25 years, according to the US Census and the APA. We already paved paradise and put up a parking lot. In response, the Green Parking Council (GPC at www.greenparkingcouncil.org) works to transform parking facilities and lots from the public face of a fossil-fueled, congestion-producing culture to an enabler of sustainable urban mobility and an accelerator of neighborhood-scale sustainability. This webinar session will highlight trends in transport, and explore sustainable mobility and solutions emerging from local and national partnerships. Successes around the country will be showcased, and strategies noted that scale up the movement. GPC’s tools include: Energy efficient technologies; Hosting of bike-sharing, car-sharing, carpooling, and mass-transit, EV charging; Responsible storm water management, Integration of intelligent transportation; Placemaking: parking assets right-sized, as well-designed, responsible neighbors; Resiliency: parking garages as energy storage and deployment centers in times of crisis; Green Garage Certification: a program inspiring parking assets to be a positive force in the built environment.
