What You Will Learn

  • Understand the community solutions-based approach (CSBA).
  • Compare and contrast CSBA to more traditional forms of planning.
  • Apply the CSBA framework to an existing project (Baltimore, MD’s B&P Tunnel Project).
  • Identify a project where you can use the CSBA. Assess how the best practices you were taught compare to what is being proposed with CSBA.

Course Description

The second course in this series focuses entirely on how to be more inclusive using the community solutions-based approach at the heart of the book "Roadways for People: Rethinking Transportation Planning and Engineering," authored by the course instructors.

As an example, we will walk through a recent project in Baltimore, Maryland to re-reroute and update an Amtrak tunnel that would impact the predominantly Black neighborhood of Reservoir Hill. The course also applies each phase of the community solutions-based approach to this example to show how projects can be more inclusive and, ultimately, why the outcome will always be better when involving the community at every step of the way.
