Community Mobility Institute
WHEN: November 14-16, 2016
WHERE: Willard Arts Center in Idaho Falls, ID
Applications will be accepted until September 30th.
This is a great opportunity for technical assistance for local communities.
New Mobility West’s Community Mobility Institute brings together local leaders to receive in-depth training on issues at the nexus of transportation, community planning and economic development. Communities can apply as teams of six to eight local leaders. If accepted, these communities receive a scholarship to attend the two and a half day training, with all lodging and most food costs covered. Community teams will work one-on-one with expert facilitators in transportation, land use planning, and economic development, and will leave the training with a better understanding of how to build stronger communities through transportation systems, and a clear path to develop an action plan of next steps on identified issues once home.
WHO CAN APPLY?
The Community Mobility Institute is open to all towns, cities and counties in Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. Up to seven teams will be selected to participate, with each team ranging from six to eight members.
Teams must demonstrate a commitment to improving transportation systems in their community, as well as an interest in integrating these efforts with their community and economic development goals. Because New Mobility West aims to bring resources to underserved communities across the region, preference will be given to projects from rural towns and medium-sized cities and regions, up to 100,000 in population. However, strong applications from larger communities will be considered.
