LiveMove Speaker Series: Parklets and Play Streets and Bike Share, Oh My!
Speaker: Jennifer Wieland, Principal, Nelson\Nygaard Consulting
After nearly seven years with the Seattle Department of Transportation, Jennifer Wieland is now a principal in the Seattle office of Nelson\Nygaard Consulting Associates, an award-winning transportation planning firm. During her time with the City of Seattle, Jennifer played a lead role in the pedestrian and transit master plans, managed large capital projects, and developed the city's Public Space Program. With more than 40 program areas — including parklets, play streets, bike share, and street ends — the Public Space Program provides opportunities for people to think creatively about how we use our streets and sidewalks, treating them as places to be and not just spaces to pass through. In her new role with Nelson\Nygaard, Jennifer will focus on projects that make it easier for people to walk, bike, and take transit, connecting the places we live, the ways we travel, and our individual and community health. Join us on Friday, April 10th, for her presentation on Rethinking Streets in Seattle.
