Oregon ITE January Webinar - Public Engagement During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Date and Time
January 19, 2021, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM PST
The COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped the transportation landscape and radically changed the daily operations of local governments across the country. With the initial shock of March 2020 behind us, many public involvement teams are reimagining public engagement to keep their key projects moving forward during what could be 18 months or more of disruptions. Our panelists, Gary Leaming from Oregon Department of Transportation, Kelsey Lewis from City of Tualatin, Jessica Pickul from JLA Public Involvement, and Matt Kittelson from Kittelson and Associates will join the moderator Kendall Flint from DKS Associates to discuss their strategies to overcome obstacles and maintain momentum on their transportation projects.
