*Planning for Facility Management and Maintenance CostsWednesday, February 17 | 2-3pm CST*
Explore design practices and construction techniques that can reduce the cost of maintaining pedestrian facilities. The session includes information on recommended design standards for sidewalk sub-grade and pavement depth and the life-cycle costs of different materials. A particular focus is street trees: learn about soil volume and best practices that reduce the impact of maturing trees on sidewalks while encouraging the life of the tree and intercepting and filtering stormwater.
