 Livable communities programs in the Kansas City and Wichita regions have been established to advance local implementation of land use and transportation practices that support regional goals. Both programs focus on funding locally developed projects that address unique community needs. Some of the activities utilized by project sponsors include design standards, zoning overlays, wayfinding, nodal and/or district plans, parking management, and corridor plans. Join us to hear about successes, lessons learned and future plans for each program.

Participants will learn:

How to integrate livability goals in relation to transportation planning,

Maximizing community involvement to improve planning, and

How the prioritization of placemaking benefits communities.
