Jan. 8: Transportation4America hosting TransportationCamp

Every year, transportation enthusiasts get together on a Saturday to share their ideas and map out new possibilities. With so much transportation legislation on the way, the 2022 virtual TransportationCamp will be more important than ever. Registration is now open!!

The reauthorization and budget reconciliation embraced the traditional approach to transportation policy: a whole lot more of the same, failing status quo. There’s a little bit of money to fight the climate crisis, encourage safer streets, and expand transit, but there’s a whole lot more to make those same problems worse—more emissions, more congestion, more pollution, more dangerous streets, more highways undermining transit investments. Where do we go from here? That’s where TransportationCamp comes in.

Now’s not the time to sit back and listen

TransportationCamp is an “unconference” bringing together passionate people who are ready to create and participate in the conversation. This is a place for all self-professed “transportation nerds,” from advocates to planners, from students to business leaders, to propose and lead sessions. Worried about a street widening project near you? Excited about new mobility technologies? This is the place to share.

There are tons of ways to make our infrastructure safer, more equitable, and more sustainable. By bringing together a melting pot of perspectives, TransportationCamp helps uncover new pathways forward. And bonus: it’s a lot of fun, too.

We’ll convene virtually once again this year, so have Zoom and Slack downloaded and ready to go. As for the rest of the details (including how to submit your session ideas between January 3 – 7, 2022), keep an eye on your inbox. We’ll keep you posted in the weeks ahead.

Oct. 20 : Penn State Extension: So You Want Agriculture in Your Community… (1.25 CM Pending)

October 20 @ 12:00 pm1:15 pm

So You Want Agriculture in Your Community: Have You Heard of PA Farm Link?

1.25 CM credits (pending approval)

In some communities, agriculture is part of the land use of the community. As the age of our farmers gets older, there could be the opportunity for “creating farming opportunities” for the next generation. Pennsylvania Farm Link, a 501c3 non-profit is dedicated to connecting farmers and landowners in Pennsylvania, and how their organization and land/farmer online database can be a “tool” to help any potential new farmers in your given municipalities.

This webinar will explore the agricultural side of land use decision making in your community by introducing planners to PA Farm Link. In addition, you will get an inside look at the PA Farm Link land linking database. This database provides the opportunity  for landowners and/or people looking to farm-land (through buying or renting) to find multiple listings from across the state. The database can be a very useful tool for municipal planners to learn about in case they have people who own land in their areas (that are looking to sell or lease), or for people who are looking for land in their areas, to be better connected.
