Moving Toward Complete Streets: Multimodal Level of Service (MMLOS) Overview & Applications

About the Workshop

Join us for this informative presentation focusing on the Multimodal Level of Service (MMLOS) methodology and how it integrates with Complete Streets policies. The workshop will introduce and illustrate best practices in the application of Complete Streets and MMLOS using case studies from Broward County and around the country. Attention will be given to the obstacles that had to be overcome and the solutions that worked. Group discussion will focus on how those same obstacles currently come to bear on local efforts to complete streets. The goal is to help identify and tailor practices that will further strengthen the region’s move toward creating, connecting, and complementing great places with great multimodal rights-of-way.

The presentation will be given by Kamala Parks, Senior Planner, and Aaron Elias, Engineering Associate, both with Kittelson & Associates, Inc. In addition, Patrice Gillespie Smith, Program Manager with Urban Health Partnerships, will share the Broward MPO’s Complete Streets Guide recently endorsed by the Broward MPO and now poised to be implemented in Broward's 31 municipalities. Please visit for more details.

Registration & networking begins at 1:15 PM. Presentation will begin promptly at 1:30 PM and run until 4:00 PM. This TES workshop is equal to 2.5 PDHs. There is no cost to attend this workshop.
