Mr. Melton will discuss how we develop our civic spaces associated with the creeks and watercourses in our urbanized areas. His interest is in long range active transportation and mobility planning, which often includes utilization of creekways, and which often is impacted – sometimes fatally - by other development influences.

Learning objectives include:

1. To more easily visualize greenway connections – what they can look like and how they can function in the context of sustainable developments associated with ecological enhancements.
2. Better understand how embracing restoration of creeks and creek daylighting can be beneficial – along with strategies for developing the discipline to complete every connection.
3. Orienting redevelopments to creeks and greenways – helping developers and their financiers aim their strategies toward higher returns on investments.
4. The retrofit conundrum – helping city dwellers and their environments stay healthy and fit, and other meteoric challenges.

Lunch will be provided.
