Throughout California and the US, we’ve seen many complete streets projects threatened, or undone entirely by backlash. Backlash can take many forms, from business, to traffic and parking, to concerns about neighborhood character. The question on everyone’s mind is how do we develop projects collaboratively with communities to minimize backlash and ensure that traffic calming and bike/ped enhancements are embraced by residents. Dr. Destiny Thomas of Los Angeles Department of Transportation will explore her “Dignity Infused Planning” framework. Anne Thomas of Shasta Living Streets will describe her experience in a smaller community. And Peter Bennett of San Jose Department of Transportation will talk about their ongoing downtown “Better Bikeways” community engagement efforts.
