The Michigan Association of Planning, in partnership with the Michigan Safe Routes to School Program and the Michigan Department of Transportation designed this annual event to bring together professionals from the fields of planning, education, transportation, health, engineering, natural resource and environmental protection, architecture, landscape architecture, and others to connect around the topic of community building for health and accessibility. 

Transportation Bonanza 13 includes general sessions and breakouts.  A few of the sessions are highlighted below:

  • Advancing Equitable Transportation Planning: Strategies for Success from the Joe Louis Greenway Process
  • Moving forward with the MM2045 Active Transportation Plan: A Bold Vision. Implementing Mobility in Michigan
  • The New Mobilities: Smart Planning for Emerging Transportation Technologies
  • Integrating Health Data into Transportation Planning

Health professionals who register for Transportation Bonanza are also invited to a special virtual presentation on March 17, 2022, from 2-3:30 pm to learn more about Michigan Fitness Foundation’s Promoting Active Communities (PAC) Assessmenta tool that can help communities better understand their barriers to active living and solutions to those barriers. Attendees will learn about how this tool can be the catalyst to implement important change in their community, such as developing improved active transportation infrastructure, increasing physical activity, and enhancing community connections.

During this training, you will hear about the PAC from Mary Moomaw, Michigan Fitness Foundation Senior Project Manager, Kerri Vasold, MFF Evaluation Specialist, and Jill Myer, Public Health Program Supervisor with Kent County.
