Join us for our Summer Feature Friday as we talk to board member Glenn Kurtz for the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition.
Glenn has been involved in Transportation Planning and Management for the past 20 years with a focus on Parking and Transportation Demand Management (TDM).
Glenn Kurtz is presently an Executive Vice President for Lanier Parking Solutions. Glenn is responsible for developing and marketing new services for Lanier that integrate parking and TDM. Glenn has built a long-term business model for Lanier and the parking industry that brings together parking and alternative transportation management services under one roof. Mr. Kurtz played key roles in Lanier’s efforts to bring the Streetcar and Carsharing (Zipcar) to Atlanta. Recently, Mr. Kurtz created LANIER consulting which focuses on parking and transportation planning for small downtowns and mixed use developments. Glenn came to Lanier from the Perimeter Transportation Coalition (PTC), were he served as the Transportation Management Association's (TMA) first Executive Director.
During his three years as Executive Director of the PTC, Glenn developed alternative transportation programs for more than a hundred companies and properties that included discount transit sales, parking management strategies, shuttle, carpooling and van pooling and pedestrian programs. Glenn spearheaded an effort that created two Community Improvement Districts in the area that continue to raise over $2 million a year for transportation infrastructure improvements. While at the PTC, Glenn chaired one of the most successful TMA Summits. The 2001 TMA Summit brought to Atlanta, Georgia over 400 transportation professionals from around the globe for three days to exchange ideas and learn from one another about TDM best practices.
Richard Lutman, author of I Like A Little Bit of the Handsome Americans Myself
I Like A Little Bit Of The Handsome Americans Myself is a quirky road novella set in the early seventies. There is no deep meaning in this novella which took me a month to write. A crucial and very funny pseudo love scene occurs in a Laundromat which inspired the cover. Pacing was important. Most of the action is dialogue-driven so the chapters had to be short.
Richard Lutman lives in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. He has a MFA in Writing from Vermont College. He currently teaches short story classes as part of Coastal Carolina University's Lifelong Learning program. His fiction has appeared in: Verdad, Slow Trains, The Green Silk Journal, Dark Sky Magazine, The Bicycle Review, Epiphany Magazine, The Petigru Review, Deep South Magazine, The Newport Review, Dew on the Kudzu, The Corner Cupboard Press, The Green Briar Review, Bethlehem Writers Roundtable and Prick of the Spindle. He has also won local and national awards for his short stories, nonfiction and screenplays.
