The architect of the award-winning Move Seattle plan, Kubly helped transform Seattle into an urban model of multimodal transportation, in which 95 percent of the nearly 45,000 jobs created in the past few years have been filled by people who walk, bike or take public transit to work. Kubly has helped countless city leaders and urban planners proactively address challenges in the ever-changing urban transportation landscape.
Kubly will share his vision for how Coloradans can address current transportation demands while planning for the future. His insight will be invaluable for anyone wondering how Colorado infrastructure can keep up with the increasing demands of an growing population.
