    LOVE YOUR STREETS: HAMILTON'S CHANGING TRANSPORTATION NETWORK
    7:00 PM to 10:00 PM Communities from Edmonton to Chicago have embraced the concept of "Complete Streets" - roads that are designed to move all road users safely and comfortably regardless of their age, ability or choice in mode of transportation - in order to breathe new life into streetscapes that had previously been dominated by the rapid movement of cars. As the needs and desires of the population change - whether it is a growing seniors population who aren't able to use their cars anymore or an influx of millenials who are demanding more multi-modal cities, cities including Hamilton are working hard to adapt an existing urban form to a new transportation paradigm. In this session, you'll hear from three dynamic speakers about the historic context behind Hamilton's current transportation network, the current projects and initiatives that are underway to change it and the exciting opportunities for the community to get involved in a meaningful way to create a city that moves according to their desires and demands, not simply the demands of traffic engineers. You'll learn new facts and figures about our transportation habits, gain a better understanding of what is happening at the City to make walking, cycling and transit better in Hamilton and learn about how the changing relationship between City Hall and the residents of Hamilton provides a better opportunity than ever to engage in positive, meaningful change. You'll come away informed, inspired and empowered, armed with the figures and the skills you need to be a partner in creating more walkable, bikeable, livable spaces in the City you love. Speakers: Sara Mayo (Social Planning and Research Council) leads the SRPC's advocacy for a Complete Streets policy for Hamilton as a tool to improve health disparities between Hamilton's neighbourhoods. She'll highlight Hamilton's riskiest streets, what Hamilton's road spending priorities have been and what an equity lens on modes of travels reveals about our city. She will show the difference a Complete Streets policy would make to improve our transportation network for all users. Justin Jones work with student groups, municipal governments and NGOs has taken him all over the country, and he is currently the Manager of the Bicycle Friendly Communities Program with the Share the Road Cycling Coalition. He is passionate about the creation of liveable cities through better infrastructure and education. Peter Topalovic, engineer, works in the City's Public Works department where he oversees the implementation of programs, policy implementation and infrastructure projects to promote active and sustainable modes of transportation, bike sharing, carsharing and carpooling throughout the City Location:   AGH Design Annex, 118 James St N, Hamilton, Region: Halton, Hamilton, Niagara      Contact Info:    http://asp.mcmaster.ca/cls_november.html
