2018 Complete Streets Workshop Series
The primary purpose of Capital District Transportation Committee's (CDTC) Educational & Technical Workshop Series is to assist local governments with developing and implementing Complete Streets policies. These free workshops are highly interactive in nature, with the goal of building local capacity to implement Complete Streets approaches, and strengthen relationships between transportation practitioners, other departments, and the community. Key decision makers, stakeholders, and agency professionals learn how to more effectively balance the needs of all users and routinely create and maintain Complete Streets. CDTC is currently soliciting sponsors for the 2018 Workshop Series. Applications are due March 2, 2018. Please visit the Complete Streets Workshop Series page for more information, and application materials.

2018 Technical Assistance Program
The Capital District Transportation Committee (CDTC) and the Capital District Regional Planning Commission's (CDRPC) 2018 Technical Assistance Program is intended to fill gaps in local level planning needs and to enhance capacity to advance projects that resonate with one or more of the Quality Region Principles of the New Visions 2040 Regional Transportation Plan. A quality region considers health, the economy, and the environment within an overall framework of land use planning and transportation policies. Projects that support these principles will help preserve and enhance the Capital District's existing urban form, infrastructure, quality of place; emphasize livable communities and smart growth; consider all modes of transportation, encourage concentrated development patterns and smart economic growth; and protect sensitive environmental resources. Generally, technical assistance provided under this program will be for projects that are well defined and short term in nature.
If your community is interested in receiving services under this program, we strongly encourage you to contact us prior to completing and application to discuss your project. For more information please visit the Technical Assistance Program page.
