The upcoming 9th International Urban Design Conference will be held at Hyatt Canberra from Monday 7 November to Wednesday 9 November 2016. Joining us are presenters from countries including Australia, China, Denmark, Hong Kong, New Zealand, United Kingdom and the United States.
Mr Edward Sullivan, Adjunct Professor of Urban Studies and Planning at Portland State University joins us at the upcoming 9th International Urban Design Conference in Canberra and will present on the topic of ‘The changing role of transportation in urban design – the Oregon story’.
Edward’s presentation will demonstrate the evolution of transportation policy from individual road decisions to planning that involves multiple transportation modes and integration of land use and transportation planning in Oregon over a 25-year period. Much of the focus is on Oregon’s Transportation Planning Rule (TPR) adopted in 1991, particularly to resolve conflicts arising from the urbanizing impacts of new or upgraded transportation facilities and the need to assure that new development would bear its fair share of transportation costs. Following a description of policies included in the TPR, the presentation considers additional future transportation planning issues that must be addressed.
Edward Sullivan specialized in land use law for over 45 years and is a retired owner who previously practiced in the Portland Office of Garvey Schubert Barer. Before going into private practice, he served as assistant county counsel and county counsel for Washington County, Oregon, and as legal counsel to the governor of Oregon.
