NH Chapter of the US Green Building CouncilJoin us to hear from two members of the Central NH Regional Planning Commission as they explain how their work aims to create and maintain a safe, dependable, environmentally sound transportation system that promotes liveable communities and the efficient movement of people and goods throughout the region. The Transportation Planning program at CNHRPC offers planning, analysis, and data collection services in a number of areas: traffic, transit, congestion management, bicycle and pedestrian planning, pavement management, and in-depth transportation studies.

Topics involving building a sustainable transportation network will be discussed including: local zoning, street design, bicycling and pedestrian education, multi-use trails and how to encourage active participation.

Don’t miss this exciting event and our last Green Eggs before the summer break! Green Eggs will resume in September.
