Collaboration Sites > Livable Communities Discussion Board


WELCOME to the Federal Highway Administration’s online discussion board for livable communities.
The Livable Communities Discussion Board is an online public forum for users to participate in discussion threads and engage with colleagues on questions and ideas related to livable communities. The site is an online community of practitioners in public, private, and non-profit agencies and organizations at the local, State, and Federal levels, who are interested in helping communities provide more transportation choices, encourage access to good jobs and affordable housing, support quality schools, and promote safer streets and roads. Participants come from a range of fields, including transportation, land use, housing, environment, and economic development.
Register here to post questions and contribute to the discussions. Examples discussed may be considered for possible case study topics as part of the FHWA's Livable Communities case study series
