Scott Bernstein's presentation will review experiences from the past two
decades measuring and mapping the sources of both travel demand and of
urban rainwater runoff in Chicago and elsewhere. It also reviews
successes in retrofitting communities for travel demand reduction, and
for "catching raindrops where they fall" as a viable flood prevention
strategy. His talk suggests that both reduced noise exposure and
increased intentional soundscape enhancement is achievable, affordable,
and economical, suggesting agendas for research, demonstration, and
local policies that can make healthy soundscapes attainable.
