Talk with Jeff Speck, best-selling author of “Walkable City”

Join us for a talk with Jeff Speck, award-winning planner and author of Walkable City, How Downtown Can Save American One Step At A Time. Speck has spent his career studying what makes cities thrive and has bored it down to one key factor: walkability. Speck explains why walking is useful, particularly regarding land-use, zoning, transit, and parking, and then focuses on how, by sharing examples of places where walking is safe, comfortable, and interesting.
