participants include federal, state and local agency staff;
engineers; planners; transportation officials; educators;
public health specialists, park and recreation managers;
and advocates who range from executives of international
organizations to lay people with an interest in improving
the quality of life and health in their community.
The theme for the 2006
conference is "Making Connections". It is based
on the recognition that success in bicycle and pedestrian
work means getting people from diverse backgrounds to work
together on a range of issues: completing street and expanding
trail networks; changing land use regulations to foster
shorter trips and better connected communities; promoting
walking and biking in health, safety, and social justice
arenas; and getting bicycle and pedestrian issues included
in increasingly complex community plans.
