    Webinar Outline


    Every trail project has many design details to incorporate for a functional, well-connected and attractive project. Features like pavement, signage, furnishings, architecture, striping, landscaping, and irrigation all contribute to a great project. Design details are often well established. There are also opportunities to try new ideas to either update a design detail or address a challenge. Successful design details get added to the Toolkit. We often don’t hear about the design details that weren’t successful. This presentation will share both the wins and losses from one planner with extensive experience in trail planning and design, including background on the creative process, testing, problem solving, and evidence of success and sometimes failure.

    Following the presentation, the panelist will respond to questions from webinar participants.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Manage in a creative manner to address project challenges for positive outcomes
    • Minimize risks when experimenting with new details or ideas
    • Engage team members and contractors to “turn lemons into lemonade”
    • Learn the importance of partnerships and how prioritizing the development of a trail network has been based upon equitable distribution.
