Invites you to attend the
APA-CMS JUNE 2009 PROGRAM
Transportation and the Environment: New Initiatives
The Yin and Yang of transportation infrastructure and environmental systems can and should be balanced. As the environmental, planning, and engineering professions evolve, there are fewer and fewer technical or financial needs requiring the sacrifice of one for the other. Indeed, there are more and more benefits to balance being discovered. This program offers planners a series of local examples of current efforts to strike this balance.
