The "great recession" has reset fundamental relationships between land use, energy, and transportation in ways that we are just now beginning to understand. This webinar will provide practical information and strategic perspectives on how local and regional transportation priorities in the Intermountain West are being affected by emerging energy and economic realities. What are the implications of the connection between economic growth and energy prices? What role will alternative energy sources such as natural gas play in reducing dependence on imported oil? How can local planners and builders set the stage for job growth? These questions and others will be examined using hard data and current examples from western communities.
This webinar is part one of a four-part series exploring transportation in our region.
