Love your streets: Hamilton's changing transportation network

  • Date: Wednesday, November 26, 2014
  • Time: 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
  • Location: Art Gallery of Hamilton
  • Address: 123 King St W, Hamilton, ON (Google Maps)

Note: due to overwhelming demand, the venue has been changed to the Art Gallery of Hamilton.

All over North America, the form and function of streets are being reevaluated. Communities from Edmonton to Chicago have embraced the concept of "Complete Streets" - roads that are designed to move all road users safely and comfortably regardless of their age, ability or choice in mode of transportation - in order to breathe new life into streetscapes that had previously been dominated by the rapid movement of cars.

As the needs and desires of the population change - whether it is a growing seniors population who aren't able to use their cars anymore or an influx of millenials who are demanding more multi-modal cities, cities including Hamilton are working hard to adapt an existing urban form to a new transportation paradigm.

In this session, you'll hear from three dynamic speakers about the historic context behind Hamilton's current transportation network, the current projects and initiatives that are underway to change it and the exciting opportunities for the community to get involved in a meaningful way to create a city that moves according to their desires and demands, not simply the demands of traffic engineers.

You'll learn new facts and figures about our transportation habits, gain a better understanding of what is happening at the City to make walking, cycling and transit better in Hamilton and learn about how the changing relationship between City Hall and the residents of Hamilton provides a better opportunity than ever to engage in positive, meaningful change.

You'll come away informed, inspired and empowered, armed with the figures and the skills you need to be a partner in creating more walkable, bikeable, livable spaces in the City you love.

Speakers

Sara Mayo

Sara Mayo is a Social Planner at the Social Planning and Research Council of Hamilton. She specializes in making data accessible and useful for social change, especially through visualization and mapping.

She also leads the SRPC's advocacy for a Complete Streets policy for Hamilton as a tool to improve health disparities between Hamilton's neighbourhoods. Sara's presentation will highlight data about Hamilton's riskiest streets, what Hamilton's road spending priorities have been and what an equity lens on modes of travels reveals about our city.

She will explain the core challenge with the City of Hamilton's goal of a "balanced transportation network", and show the difference a Complete Streets policy would make to improve our transportation network for all users.

Justin Jones, MA.

Justin Jones is a project manager, sustainability professional and rabble rouser with nearly a decade of experience in the sustainability field. His work with student groups, municipal governments and NGOs has taken him all over the country, and he is currently the Manager of the Bicycle Friendly Communities Program with the Share the Road Cycling Coalition.

Peter Topalovic

If he’s not on a long bike ride or on a long walk on the beach, Peter can usually be found dreaming about sustainability. By day, Peter works in the Public Works department of the City of Hamilton where he oversees the implementation of a wide range of programs, policy implementation and infrastructure projects to promote active and sustainable modes of transportation, bike sharing, carsharing and carpooling throughout the City.

Peter received his masters in Engineering and Public Policy from McMaster University, specializing in transportation and energy policy, corporate social responsibility and sustainable infrastructure, and has worked in the transportation planning field since.

In addition to his work at the City, Peter teaches at McMaster University, supports the school of engineering practice in various capacities and has written and published academic papers relating to corporate social responsibility and transportation policy.

He is also the Chair of the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area TDM Coordinating Committee.

Peter is born, raised and lives in Hamilton and is proud of it.

Matthew Sweet

Matthew Sweet is the TDM Coordinator for the City of Cambridge, a sessional faculty member at Mohawk College teaching the Active Transportation course in the Transportation Engineering Technology program, and is a graduate of both Mohawk and McMaster.

Matthew enjoys implementing programs, whether they be active infrastructure or educational and encouragement programs to convince people to try walking, cycling and taking transit. In his role teaching at Mohawk College, Matthew works to make the case for active transportation to students who have been immersed in auto-centric courses for the vast majority of their College careers.

In his fleeting spare time, Matthew is the Vice Chair and Webmaster of Hamilton's Sustainability Professionals Network. Matthew lives in Hamilton with his wife and daughter.

From Coins to Polls to Monte Carlo: Public Lecture by Jeffrey Rosenthal

  • Date: Friday, December 05, 2014
  • Time: 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
  • Location: Sheraton Hamilton Hotel, Ballroom East
  • Address: 116 King Street West, Hamilton, ON (Google Maps)

Why do casinos always make money, even though gamblers sometimes win and sometimes lose?

Why do strange coincidences seem to occur so often?

How did statistics help to expose the Ontario Lottery Retailer Scandal?

Jeffrey Rosenthal answers these questions and more in his public lecture: "From Coins to Polls to Monte Carlo"

This talk will discuss randomness and probability in relation to such questions as:

  • If you flip 100 coins, how close will the number of heads be to 50?

  • How many dying patients must be saved to demonstrate that a new medical drug is effective?

  • If a poll samples 1,000 people, how accurate are the results?

  • If two babies die in the same family without apparent cause, should the parents be convicted of murder?

  • And how is all of this related to Monte Carlo Algorithms, an extremely popular and effective method for scientific computing?

No mathematical background is required to attend.
