A new event will share ideas on how to create safe and accessible road transportation systems that enhance a community's well-being.

Streets Alive SWFL and the Royal Palm Coast Realtor Association are hosting a two-day Transportation Summit featuring national and international experts, area planners, engineers and government leaders.

Organizers say it will bring together the experts on integrating transportation and community design for the benefit of walkers, bicycle riders, public transit users and motorists.

"It’s an opportunity to learn from the best, get questions answered and concerns addressed,” said Ann Pierce, education chairwoman for Streets Alive SWFL.

The first conference day will be held in Bonita Springs, and offers continuing education units for certain professional participants. It’s already sold-out.

The public is invited, however, to attend the second day, in Cape Coral.

That’s 8 a.m. to noon Friday, Sept. 30, at the Cape Coral Yacht Club Ballroom, 5819 Driftwood Parkway, Cape Coral.

Admission is $42, and includes breakfast.
Go to to register.

The keynote speakers will be: Billy Hattaway, secretary, District 1, Florida Department of Transportation; Ian Lockwood, livable transportation engineer for the Toole Design Group; Dan Burden, Blue Zones director of innovation and inspiration; and Paula Benway, international president of the Institute of Transportation Engineers.
