Interchange – Greg Raisman, BTOP

Host Mylo Roze speaks with members of Bloomington Transportation Options for People (BTOP) and Oregon-based transportation consultant Greg Raisman from the Portland Department of Transportation. BTOP founder Buff Brown & BTOP member Bill Hayden start off the program and Greg jumps in a litttle later with national statistics and insights into the paradigm shift and infrastructural changes implemented in Portland with great success. Topics discussed include parking, the Finelight/Fernandez parking garage subsidy request to the City of Bloomington, parking garage usage studies, greenspace, traffic safety, bicycling and pedestrian safety, public transit, traffic-calming strategies, safe routes to schools, facilitation of alternative modes of travel and the overarching environmental considerations driving conscientious urban planning.
