Special Transportation Seminar:

Denver Igarta, a planner with the Portland Bureau of Transportation, spent the month of November meeting with planners, advocates, urban designers and engineers in Munich (Germany), Rotterdam (Netherlands), Copenhagen (Denmark) and Malmo (Sweden), on a fellowship sponsored by the German Marshall Fund. His presentation will share lessons on how these cities have structured their street systems to provide for mobility and access while still protecting residential areas from the negative effects of motor vehicle traffic.
