NYC members of APA, ITE, ASCE, AIA, and ASLA are invited to attend open houses introducing the recently released New York City Street Design Manual. The first of its kind for the city, the manual is a resource that aims to foster safer, more efficient, greener, and more livable city streets. The culmination of two years of work by a 10-agency task force, it provides policies and design guidelines to city agencies, design professionals, developers, and community groups for the improvement of streets and sidewalks throughout the five boroughs. Topics to be covered include:

· Purpose of the Manual and how it was developed;
· Organization and format of the guidelines;
· Benefits to users including expedited design review;
· Integrating guidelines into streetscape projects;
· Submitting suggestions and learning about updates.
The open houses will take place on 09.16.09 and 10.01.09 at the Department of Transportation headquarters, 55 Water Street, ACCO/Permit Office. RSVP to with name, date of attendance, organization, number of attendees, e-mail address, and phone number by 09.14.09.
