TO THE ATTENTION OF DIVISION ADMINISTRATORS, PLANNERS, ENVIRONMENTAL STAFF, and SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES POINTS OF CONTACT:

The purpose of this email is to inform you about the new weekly Human Environment (HE) Digest, scheduled to begin Thursday, April 3, 2014. The HE Digest will share the latest information from a range of Federal and non-Federal sources, addressing transportation and its relationship to the human environment.  The audience will be both government and non-government practitioners, with an interest in the human environment.  Through this information exchange, FHWA hopes to foster dialogue at all levels and continue to further the state of the practice in eight initial topic areas—Bicycle/Pedestrian, Community Impact Assessment, Economic Development, Environmental Justice, Health, Livability, Partnership for Sustainable Communities, and Public Involvement.  The digest will also highlight policy, training, R&D, and leadership opportunities pertaining to the human environment.  Users can register to receive the HE Digest by clicking on the following link: http://bit.ly/1dcuUhi or users can register via the Livability website at:  http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/livability/.
