Campbell, Levine and Kahan Featured on WEMU's "The Green Room" Addressing Pedestrian and Bicycle Access in Winter
Taubman College faculty members Scott Campbell, Jonathan Levine, and Jeff Kahan were featured on WEMU’s “The Green Room,” radio show on February 27, 2015. The team joined host Barbara Lucas to discuss recent calls by the Climate Action Plan of Ann Arbor for increasing walking, biking and public transit to decrease our carbon footprint. However, heavy precipitation events have increased 37% in the Midwest in the last century, making public transit and keeping pathways clear difficult and challenging during the winter months.
Scott Campbell, Associate Professor of Urban and Regional Planning, is a member of Ann Arbor's Pedestrian Safety and Access Task Force, and Jeff Kahan, a current faculty lecturer, is an Ann Arbor City Planner. Professor of Urban and Regional Planning Jonathan Levine, was interviewed as a regular bicycle commuter. All were on to discuss pedestrian and bicycle access in winter and to explore local attempts to make sustainable travel viable, year-round.
