Complete Streets Beyond Moving Vehicles

Streets not only move people and vehicles, much of life can take place there, from commerce, to socializing, to employment, to recreation. Streets should be designed to serve all these purposes well. A complete street will include safer speeds for vehicles, accessibility for bicycles and buses, on-street parking, a safe sidewalk, shade, and other features that make a street pleasant and livable. The statewide, but locally administered program entitled Complete Streets provides education and design solutions to completing our public thoroughfares.
