Ms. Tara Goddard, City of Davis Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator
What does it mean to be the bike-friendliest city in the country? Does everyone agree that we are? And where are we going from here? Tara Goddard, ITS Davis graduate (Civil, 2005), will share the good, the bad, and the odd from her perspective as the City of Davis Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator. This will be a non-technical look at non-motorized transportation planning at the local level, set against the backdrop of the unique community of Davis. Come learn why other communities are nipping at the heels of our bike-friendly reputation, and why that is a good thing, and why there is a greater need than ever for innovative bikeway planners and engineers.
