The Principles of Traffic and Transportation - 20 Week Evening Lecture Series

Start/End Date: Wednesday, September 12, 2018 12:00 AM - Wednesday, January 30, 2019 12:00 AM
District: Ontario

The seminars will start September 12th and continue until February 2019 (total 20). The seminars will take place every Wednesday between 5:30 - 7:00pm at the Markham Civic Centre located at 101 Town Centre Blvd. Markham Ontario.

 

Introduction
The transportation system is being asked to play a greater role in society these days as we strive to move people, fuel the economy, be more energy efficient, and address the role of the automobile in climate change.

These are broad themes that will affect the transportation profession for years to come, however at the 'street level' there is still the day-today of designing, operating, evaluating and improving the local transportation system in our cities and towns.

Whether you are new to the transportation industry, are looking to refresh your knowledge on transportation principles, or if you have taken on a new responsibility or are working in a ‘niche area’ and wish to broaden your knowledge, PTRC’s 20 week evening lecture series offers a cost-effective and time-inexpensive training course that will benefit both the participating employee and their employer.

This evening seminar program has been running in Europe for over fifteen years. After the success of the program in Toronto from 2011 - 2014, PTRC will again be running the series from September 2018 to February 2019.

Structure
The series will consist of 20 lectures delivered by local experienced transportation practitioners from consultancies, local authorities and governments, who are experts in their
field. Presenters will be drawn from consulting firms, local agencies, academia and other government bodies. Each seminar will cover a specific topic and the content has been devised as far as possible to cover the typical principles of a transportation scheme.

Tutors will be encouraged to design interactive sessions to accompany their talk and there will be plenty of time for discussion and questions, and may also open up opportunities for networking.

Please join OPPI Northern District in our continuing Lunch and Learn series as we welcome Glen Ferguson, RPP, Senior Planner at the City of Greater Sudbury as he explores the City of Greater Sudbury's recently adopted incentive-based "path of least resistance" approach to engaging in public consultation on proposed radio-communication and broadcasting antenna systems in our local communities.

A key question that needs to be answered is it really possible to balance the interests of antenna system proponents with local land use planning concerns and preferences? Glen will present an approach that Planners can use in our practice.

·         Jurisdictions and interrelations of planning legislation

·         Applying, interpreting and challenging legislation
