American Society of Landscape Architects Statement on the State of the Union

Washington, D.C., January 20, 2015—The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) has issued the following statement after President Barack Obama delivered his State of the Union address calling for a 21st century infrastructure plan. 

“Landscape architects have long provided critical infrastructure, including transportation options that meet the needs of all Americans. They design multi-use transportation corridors that accommodate all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, people with disabilities and people who use public transportation. These multi-use transportation systems reduce reliance on a single-use automotive transport, which in turn reduces traffic, improves air quality and promotes a resilient way of life.

“ASLA continues to defend federal programs important to landscape architects, including the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) and key federal policies for Complete Streets. The Society understands that resilient design will help address trends affecting our nation’s transportation systems—including rapid population growth in the South and West, and the need to replace aging roads and other infrastructure in the East and Midwest—as outlined in the forthcoming 30-year transportation framework developed by the U.S. Department of Transportation. We will continue to address these challenges in conversations with all who will shape our future infrastructure.

“We urge our policymakers to support a transportation infrastructure bill that will work for all Americans and help communities plan for growth and change.”
