Two presentations will take place during this session.

Visualization as a Design and Planning Tool for Complete Streets Projects (Aditya Inamdar): Visualizations or graphics greatly help our ability to communicate, perceive, process, and to respond to complex information. This is especially true when the information presented is highly technical as well as multi-disciplinary, and also of high interest to the public at large. Designing and planning Complete Streets is one such complex multi-disciplinary process that requires disparate sets of information to be synthesized and presented in a comprehensive manner. Complete Streets are more than just transportation projects, apart from designing safe and comfortable streets for all modes, they have multiple other goals, like creating public spaces for the community to gather, generating economic development, implementing green infrastructure, etc. Such complex projects with multiple goals and objectives require multi-disciplinary teams to work cohesively as well as present a whole picture of the project to stakeholders and to the public, throughout the planning process. This presentation will show how technically accurate, yet easy to understand visualizations such as before and after 3D renderings, animations, rendered plans, cross-sections, and simple diagrams, can act not just as a communication tool, but also as an integral design tool to help simply the planning process.

Making Connections - Creating a Robust Cycling Network in Chattanooga (G. Wade Walker)  So you want to connect assets such as a world-class Aquarium, vibrant Downtown, expanding Riverwalk, a University, bikeshare system, and historic neighborhoods.  How do you go about it?  In Chattanooga the City is implementing a plan to create an on-street network of complete streets and protected bike lanes to create an integrated and connected system for residents and visitors alike.  This session tells the story of the planning, design, and implementation of a network that considers complete streets, protected bike lanes, and greenways an integral part of the City's transportation system.  The panelists will articulate through words and images how the City created and realized the system, and overcame challenges such as funding and engineering issues to realize a system that truly gives Chattanoogans choices about how they move, enhancing the quality of life that makes Chattanooga a desirable place to live, work, and play.
