What are COMPLETE STREETS?

Complete Streets balance the needs of drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, transit vehicles, emergency responders, and commercial vehicles based on the roadway context.  A Complete Streets Policy ensures that local roadways are designed or improved with safety and comfort for all users. Complete Streets policies make our roadways safer and more accessible and create numerous public health and economic benefits for communities.
