Overview

Complete Streets work for everyone who uses them. They are safe, comfortable, and convenient for people of all ages and all abilities, from children bicycling to school to seniors walking to shop or visit friends when they can no longer drive. When a community has Complete Streets, its residents can choose to walk, bike, drive, or ride transit depending on their destinations.

 

When a community has Complete Streets, its residents can choose to walk, bike, drive, or ride transit depending on their destinations. Creating Complete Streets isn’t hard, and it isn’t necessarily expensive, but it does require a commitment on the part of local government to changing how streets are planned, designed, built, operated and maintained. More than 1,000 communities across America have done this by adopting Complete Streets policies, which ensure that all people and all modes of travel are considered in every project. In return, they have created safer streets, stronger economies, and better quality of life for everyone.

 

This webinar will provide an introduction to complete Streets and how complete streets policies can be used to transform communities. Participants will learn about what the term “Complete Streets” means, how communities can benefit, what elements are incorporated into the best policies, and how policies can be implemented to create real change. The information attendees receive will allow them to develop Complete Streets policies in their own communities.
