Brown Bag Discussions - 2013 Summer Schedule


posted at 10:25 am Fri Jun 21st, 2013 by (WherezIt_Staff)

 
 
It's as easy as one, two, three:
  1. Bring a lunch & grab a seat;
  2. Listen to a 10-15 min introduction by the discussion leaders; and
  3. Participate in a conversation about critical issues in transportation.
Please join us for lively conversation at one (or all!) of our Brown Bag discussions. All discussions are on Fridays from 12:00 to 1:00 in Decision Theater, Farrell Hall. The building is accessible and directions can be found here.  Remote access capabilities will also be provided.  Directions on how to link to the presentations or view recordings of previous presentations can be found on the Brown Bag Website.

We hope to see you this summer!

Upcoming Brown Bags

June 21st - Transportation Surveys: Attitudinal Changes and Trends in Chittenden County, VT, 2000 - 2012  
Hosted By: Amanda Hanaway-Corrente of the Transportation Research Center
Discussion leader: Peter Keating, Senior Transportation Planner, Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission

In the spring of 2012, the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC) worked with an independent, Resource Systems Group, Inc. (RSG), to conduct an important survey in order to better understand the transportation-related attitudes and opinions of Chittenden County residents. The CCRPC was primarily interested in assessing the public's thoughts on the current performance of the region's transportation system and their priorities for future transportation investment and improvement. The results of this study, the "Chittenden County Transportation Survey," help to inform potential transportation initiatives grounded in the opinions and expectations of its citizens. In addition, given that this was the third iteration of the survey (the first two were conducted in 2000 and 2006, respectively), results from this year's survey are also used to track changes in opinions over time. These historical shifts will be the focus of Peter Keating's presentation for the TRC's Brown Bag Seminar Series.
