Streets and sidewalks comprise close to 80 percent of a city’s public space. These streets not only represent essential corridors of commerce and industry, they serve as front yards, playgrounds, and theaters which showcase the expressions of urban life. It lies in the hands of the public to define how they use this wealth of space, but it is the responsibility of city leaders in transportation to stir their minds to imagine all the possibilities.

America’s cities are where innovation is happening. As we strive to compete in a global environment, cultural and economic productivity will be centered around our cities, the engines of our nation’s economy.

Designing Cities: Leading the Way to World Class Streets is an opportunity for elected officials, transportation leaders, and key stakeholders from the public and private sector to forge a common vision for cities to achieve national objectives for healthier, more sustainable, equitable, and efficient cities of tomorrow.
