Complete Streets are roadways designed to safely and comfortably accommodate all users, including, but not limited to motorists, cyclists, pedestrians, transit and school bus riders, delivery and service personnel, freight haulers, and emergency responders. "All users" includes people of all ages and abilities. Learn more about a variety of Complete Streets topics on our toolkit page.

Current Complete Streets Efforts

We’ve adopted a regional Complete Streets Policy. Now what? We continue to work with communities on writing and adopting local policies, and we review infrastructure improvement plans submitted to us for funding consideration to make sure Complete Streets elements are included where appropriate. The National Complete Streets Coalition reviewed over 350 Complete Streets Policies across the nation and found that the MORPC Complete Streets Policy was a top-rated policy for a metropolitan planning organization. 

We also play the Complete Streets Game with communities’ staff, decision makers, and residents. The game brings up important issues about the safety and enjoyment of our streets, not to mention it’s fun.  Let us know if you want to play! Contact Amelia Costanzo >> 614.233.4161.
