About the CSS National Dialog 2
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is renewing its sponsorship of the National Dialog. The effort is supported by a project team led by Project Performance Corporation in collaboration with the Center for Transportation and the Environment, Parsons, and Project for Public Spaces.
The Dialog is funded by the FHWA’s Office of Planning, Environment and Realty’s Surface Transportation Environment and Planning Cooperative Research Program (STEP).
The goals of the Dialog are to:
- Deliver CSS principles and practices to a wide array of partner organizations
- Strengthen and broaden the constituency for CSS
- Discover new opportunities for partnerships
- Bring new perspectives to the practice of planning, designing, building, operating and maintaining transportation facilities
- Foster a community of CSS practice
The Dialog will be conducted through a series of nine workshops to be held in various locations across the country. Workshops will feature exemplary transportation projects, plans or programs that highlight CSS best practices and will offer a forum for discussion and interaction. Each workshop will be simultaneously webcast to allow for viewing and participation at the national level. No travel support for workshop attendees can be provided by Federal Highway Administration.
The Dialog is supported by a Steering Committee of professionals representing a broad range of expertise in the transportation industry.
