The Seaside Institute, in coordination with Walton County, the International Transportation Innovation Center (ITIC) and Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) hosted this workshop on Oct. 19 and 20 to help develop alternate transportation planning for County Road 30A. Vehicle, communication and power system designers, entrepreneurs active in on-demand transportation and transportation infrastructure experts from across the country were invited to participate in what will be one of the most innovative transportation planning initiatives ever launched in Florida. The workshop is partially funded with a grant from the Department of Economic Opportunity.
