Tigard on the Move: Speaker Series

Tigard’s “On the Move” speaker series invites thinkers, innovators, thought leaders, and experts in transportation to share their perspectives on the future of transportation.

Presenters are invited to share what they know and see about the state-of-the-art in transportation technology, planning and community building.

This speaker series offers an opportunity to explore themes and think critically about the changing dynamics of transportation in the context of the city’s strategic vision to create a more walkable, healthy and interconnected city for all residents.

Speakers will share their expertise on the following themes:

Smart Cities… Resistance is Futile Transportation + Technology

We are in the early stages of a massive shift in the way that people choose to travel.  New options, new business models and new modes are popping up overnight.  Many call the convergence of Autonomous, Connected, Shared and Electric Vehicles the Third Revolution in Transportation. 

Come discuss how this Third Revolution may affect Tigard and why we need to care now.

Planning for a Radically Different Future Transportation + Climate
Kendra Breiland, Fehr and Peers
March 18, 2020 | 5:30 – 7 p.m.
Symposium Coffee

In a quickly changing world, how do we predict future travel needs to adequately size our transportation systems?

During this interactive session, we will introduce TrendLab+ and then have participants weigh in their expectations for 12 future trends that will influence the future of travel in Tigard. With the results, we’ll develop a Transportation System Plan year forecast to help understand how trends could influence transportation infrastructure needs planning.

In the Driver’s Seat Transportation + Economy
Jerry Johnson, Johnson Economics
April 15, 2020 | 5:30 – 7 p.m.
Symposium Coffee

Transportation investments impact development. Johnson Economics has developed a predictive development modeling framework that translates changes in the market such as rent levels into anticipated changes in development outcomes.

This presentation discusses the financial characteristics of a range of development types, the reasons developments occur in the form that they do and ways in which interventions can influence outcomes.
