  • Rethinking Streets - New Report Available: The University of Oregon's Sustainable Cities Initiative has released a new report which provides detailed information on 25 successful complete streets projects across the United States. The report shows how communities implemented street improvements and the results of the changes they achieved. 
  • Creating Livable Communities for Everyone: TGM sponsored presentations by Gil Penalosa, the executive director of 8-80 Cities, on February 19 and 20 in Salem and Eugene. Gil advises decision makers and communities on how to create vibrant cities and healthy communities for everyone regardless of social, economic, or ethnic background. His focus is the design and use of parks and streets as great public places, as well as sustainable mobility. Link to his presentation here.
  • TGM Project Becomes a Reality in Bend: In mid-2013, the Bend Parks and Recreation District completed construction on a pedestrian bridge linking the First Street Rapids Park on the east side of the Deschutes with the trail on the west side of the river. The bridge was originally conceived as part of a TGM-funded planning project in 1995. It’s great to see TGM planning projects becoming reality – click here to see the original bridge concept and a photo of the completed bridge.
