2010 Lake Arrowhead Symposium on the Transportation-Land Use-Environment Connection

Oct 17 @ 11:30 am-Oct 19 @ 4:30 pm

20th Annual Lake Arrowhead Symposium focuses on Infrastructure Investment for Sustainable Growth This year marks the 20th anniversary of the UCLA Lake Arrowhead Symposium, a collaborative enterprise that brings researchers, policymakers, senior practitioners, and private sector representatives together each fall to discuss and debate the transportation – land use – environment connection. This year’s symposium was held October 17-19, around the theme, Infrastructure Investment for Sustainable Growth.”  At the invitation-only event, speakers addressed the management of various transportation and land use infrastructure systems, with particular attention to the debates in the areas of energy and goods movement. Attendees explored the challenges to and opportunities for infrastructure investment to support economically and environmentally sustainable growth in the years ahead, including such high-profile investments such as high speed rail.   From the perspectives of research, policy, and practice, speakers debated and deliberated on the social, environmental and economic arguments for sustaining growth in the face of a persistent economic downturn, a deepening public finance crisis, waxing concern with climate change, and chronic geo-political instability.  The challenges to linking transportation, land use, and the environment have never been greater. The symposium is co-sponsored and organized by UCLA Lewis Center and the Institute of Transportation Studies, UCLA School of Public Affairs, and UCLA Extension Public Policy Program.  Look for a summary of highlights from the Lake Arrowhead symposium in the next Lewis Center newsletter!  For more information about this year’s program and past symposia, go to: [http://www.its.ucla.edu/events/]
