Our event coming up soonest though is a community conversation on roundabouts. We are bringing in a panel of experts from all over the country who have devoted their careers to roundabouts. Want to know why roundabouts are growing so much in popularity? How they can be used in small spaces where there isn’t room for a traditional large traffic circle? How to navigate them? How they can improve the walkability and livability of your community or neighborhood? Then check out our roundabout event.
