2020 State of Transportation Planning Report

The American Planning Association has published the 2020 State of Transportation Planning report and we’re thrilled to share articles written by Alta staff.

Alta planner Courtney Banker, Alta principal Sam Corbett, and Julia Lippe-Klein discuss the Disadvantaged Communities Planning Initiative in partnership with SCAG.  This planning effort is focused on developing active transportation plans for disadvantaged communities throughout Southern California.

Alta senior associate planner Jeff Knowles wrote an article about Let’s Bike Oakland. He shares how Oakland, CA developed an equity-centered engagement model, including selecting community organizations as paid consultants, and how this new model of partnership outreach can work in other communities.
