Dunwoody Nature Center , 5343 Roberts Drive, Dunwoody, GA, 30338, United States.

The Atlanta Regional Commission, City of Dunwoody, and Perimeter Community Improvement Districts are hosting a free workshop on safe, complete street design and implementation. Communities across Georgia have been working toward complete streets for years, and there have been exciting innovations to make projects quicker to implement, more responsive to real-world performance, and better for safety outcomes.

The workshop will be led by Toole Design Group and will build on ARC's "Regional Workbook for Complete Streets." Agenda items will cover techniques for identifying high-injury and high-risk streets, design guidance for proven safety countermeasures within complete streets, and strategies funding and implementing complete streets - including quick-build projects. The target audience is policymakers, city and county staff members responsible for public works, transportation and transit, and anyone interested in these issues.
