Speak Up Broward: Phase 3

Speak Up Broward Online

The Speak Up Broward Online series is a new interactive initiative to connect with the public during times of social distancing. The Speak Up Broward Online Events is a one-hour facilitated discussion between a diverse panel of 4-5 professionals. The panelist provides different perspectives and interests on the monthly topic (ex. micro-mobility, transit, etc.) and the conversation is moderated by MPO staff.

Think Like A Planner Program 

The Think Like A Planner Workshop series sends MPO staff into Broward's high schools and middle schools. We introduce students to transportation planning, hold an interactive session building complete streets (using StreetMix software) and those students then participate in a half-day workshop where they are immersed in a career environment at the Broward MPO office. This event provides each student with the opportunity to shadow transportation professionals and conduct their own short group presentations before elected officials.

To execute a program of this magnitude, MPO Staff developed a close working relationship with Broward County Public Schools’ Career, Technical, Adult, Community Education (CTACE) Department. This department has been charged with equipping their students with skills that link education and employment outcomes (LEEO). Together we worked with CTACE to develop rubrics, schedules and the program in its entirety. The CTACE department also supplies the MPO with LEEO schools to participate in the workshops and assists with coordination for this program. The outcome of these workshops is a win for the agency; increasing visibility in the community and raising awareness of the field of transportation planning.

Broward County Public Schools who have participated in Think Like A Planner include:

  • Deerfield Beach High School
  • South Broward High School
  • Piper High School
  • MacArthur High School
  • Dillard High School
  • Hallandale High School
  • McNicol Middle School
  • McFatter Technical School
  • Ramblewood Middle School
