I'm currently a licensed Civil Technician (C. Tech) pursuing my Civil Technologist (CET) designation and the final requirement is that I complete a Technology Report (TR) 3,000 words in length. I've decided to make the subject of my report "A New Hammer: Utilizing Mixed Transit, Roadway Redesign and Altered Planning Practices to Increase Urban Livability", provided I can attain enough data and studies to do so.
Along with my own research, I'd appreciate any input from people on this board.
Aside from the obvious requirement of it being technical, the report needs to be investigative in nature; and in this case I'd like to limit it to the discussion and comparison of the methods used today and alternatives to it - providing empirical evidence and/or studies and data to support the claim that a change to more forward-thinking design practices is necessary for our city to become what it can and should be.
Once again, please post any data or links you think may be relevant in the comments. I'm also open to suggestions if there are better topics to use as subject material (or a change in title!). What I am not open to is changing the topic into something other than a civil/planning nature.
Thanks in advance for your help.
