The December Talking Freight is now available for registration. Please
to register.


Date: December 15, 2010

Time: 1:00 - 2:30 pm ET

Topic: Freight and Land Use - Making the Connection

Description: Land use and transportation decisions provide the framework
for freight nodes and the transportation links that ultimately shape the
functioning of local and regional economies. To have a successful
freight system, transportation and land use decision makers must
understand the impact of their actions, share critical information and
engage with each other and the private sector. Learn how two MPOs are
making the freight and land use connection through activities such as
stakeholder involvement, site plan reviews, regional freight planning
and freight villages studies and hear about FHWA's upcoming handbook on
Freight and Land Use.
