Sustainable City Year Program will engage hundreds of students in transit and transportation development plans

Improving Communities Through Unleashing University Talent: EPIC-N’s 6th Annual Sustainable City Year Conference

SCI’s Sustainable City Year Program model has been called “perhaps the most comprehensive effort by a U.S.

After a successful first term working on projects ranging from market alternatives for biosolids to ideas for downtown Albany’s Water Avenue corridor, students involved in the University of Oregon’s Sustainable City Year Program are continuing their efforts in Albany with nine Winter Term classes that are working on 12 Albany-identified projects.

CityLab has posted a report from this years Consumer Electronics Show and – unsurprisingly – the roll-out of AV’s seems to be focused on shared fleets and they will focus on freight and high occupancy transport.  Cost seems to be the largest factor early on with AV technology being cost-prohibitive for individual ownership (although Tesla might have something to say about that).  Another reason is simply the ability to monitor and modify cars and algorithms – much easier to do roll-out and testing in limited contact points via larger shared fleets.

Congratulations to Mugs Scherer and Rachel Struxness student report writers of the year. Mugs completed Redmond’s Midtown Neighborhood: Five Visions report in fall term 2015 and Rachel completed the Strategic Public Relations Plan & Client Materials-Redmond Wastewater Division report winter term 2016. Landscape Architecture professor Robe Ribe and instructor Jeff Krueger were presented instructor of the year award for Land Planning and Design and Senior instructor Beth Hjelm who taught Business Strategy and Planning. Thank you all for an amazing year of work.
