Tim Sullivan

2016 UP Week Blog Tour

As a transportation planner, I work with a wide range of communities throughout the American West. Increasingly, the looming question for my clients is how to cure our addiction to automobiles as they recognize the toll automobiles have taken on our landscape.

Tim Sullivan is a city planner, urban designer, and writer whose professional focus is the reshaping of cities and communities through alternative transportation planning. He is the author of No Communication with the Sea: Searching for an Urban Future in the Great Basin. He lives in Salt Lake City with his wife and two children.

Tim Sullivan spoke and signed copies of his book Ways to the West at The King's English Bookshop in Salt Lake City on the evening of September 10 as part of their 37th-anniversary celebration.
