What Are Complete Streets?
Complete Streets are road systems that provide safe, convenient access for all users including motorists, bicyclists, transit operators and users, and pedestrians of all ages and abilities. The Complete Streets concept focuses not just on individual roads but on changing the decision-making and design process so that all users are routinely considered during the planning, designing, building and operating of all roadways.
Complete Streets contribute many benefits to the surrounding community:
- Help Keep Kids Safe
- Promote Good Health
- Make for a Good Ride
- Encourage Economic Revitalization
- Improve Safety for Everyone
- Create Livable Communities
